The Powassan Voodoos have signed 2002 birth year defenceman Cameron Savoie, a graduate of the Niagara North Stars U18 AAA program, the Voodoos announced on Saturday.  

The St. Catharines, Ontario product, who is enrolled in the Respiratory program at Canadore College this fall, played last season for well-known coach Marty Williamson.  

"Marty had a lot of really good things to say about Cameron," said Chris Dawson, Voodoos GM.  

"He is known for really making a good, quick first pass and I think that is something we are always looking for with our smaller rink in Powassan."  

Savoie, who had 3 goals and 8 assists for 11 points in 32 U18 AAA games last year, is excited to join the 2019-20 NOJHL regular-season champions in 2020-21.  

"I’m excited to continue my hockey career with the Voodoos because of the history and how welcome I have felt," said Savoie.  

"Joining the small-town community where hockey is their sport and being known that I am a leader and where young kids can look up to me. Whenever the season starts I’ll be ready."  

The Voodoos are still waiting for more direction from Hockey Canada, the OHF and the NOJHL as to when the 2020-21 season is set to begin.
