The Powassan Voodoos have acquired 19-year-old defenceman Noah Brant from the Picton Pirates of the PJCHL, the club announced on Wednesday.
Brant, who attended the Voodoos spring camp at Memorial Gardens in April, netted 17 goals along with 28 assists for 45 points in 42 games with the Pirates last season.
“It is an honour to sign with the Voodoos I can already tell with just what I’ve heard how good of a year it’s going to be,” said Brant.
“It’s an honour to be throwing that jersey over my head this year.”
Voodoos head coach Max Gavin believes Brant will be a good fit in 2019-20.
“He adds size and speed to our D core, and will help fill the minutes that our graduating players (Moore and Wood’s) ate up last year,” said Gavin about the defenceman, who accumulated 97 points in two and a half seasons of junior C hockey in Picton.
“With him being able to play forward as well it adds another element to his game, so we are excited to have him join us.”
Brant will join his new teammates on August 23 for the start of the Voodoos main training camp.
