The Powassan Voodoos added another big defenceman to the back end with the signing of North Central Major Midget AAA Predators big defender Finn Acton-Rinaldo, the club announced on Thursday.
The 6'3", 180 defenceman impressed the Voodoos as an invite to their April Camp at Memorial Gardens.
"He's got a lot of size and he moves well for a big guy. That size will be helpful for our back end this upcoming season," noted Chris Dawson, Voodoos GM.
"We are excited to have Finn join the Voodoos," noted Max Gavin, Voodoos head coach.
"Finn brings size and good vision and will be a great addition to our blue line.”
Acton-Rinaldo, who netted 3 goals and 5 assists for 8 points in 30 games with the Predators last season, says he is impressed with what he sees with the Powassan Voodoos program.
"I saw the success the team had last season, it is just a very successful organization and classy. The team put on a very good camp it really made me want to play with the Voodoos," said Acton-Rinaldo, who will attend grade 12 at Widdifeld S.S this fall.
"I hope to support the whole D core as a whole, I want to play more defensive but I can also throw in some offensive shine and get the job done."
The 2002 birth-year defenceman also has familiarity with the region as his family has had a cottage in the North Bay area for years.
Earlier this month, the Voodoos added big 2003 birth year defender Riley Pitt, who played on the North Central Minor Midget AAA Predators last season.
In other Voodoos news, the Voodoos have moved defenceman Clark Allair to the Brampton Admirals of the OJHL for a development fee.
Acton-Rinaldo will join the Voodoos for the start of training camp in Powassan on August 23.
