IceDogs add overage forward
The Niagara IceDogs added to their depth up front, picking up right-winger Brady Hinz from the Peterborough Petes. In exchange, the IceDogs have traded a conditional 15th-round pick in the 2022 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection, previously belonging to Hamilton.
Hinz, a 20-year-old Stratford native, is a former third-round pick of the Sarnia Sting in 2016. The 5-foot-9, 148-pound forward has played for Sarnia (2016-18) and Peterborough (2018-2020). Hinz collected a career-high 42 points in the 2017-18 season. He is coming off a 2019/20 campaign that saw him net 15 goals and 13 assists in 58 games.
In 248 OHL games, Hinz had accumulated 54 goals and 75 assists for 129 points.
“We are thrilled to add Brady to our organization,” IceDogs general manager Joey Burke said. “I have been a fan of his for years. He has a high skill level, and plays a style very conducive to how we like to do things in Niagara.”
Hinz, Jackson Doherty, Andrew Bruder, Adrien Beraldo and goaltender Daniel Murphy are the overage players currently on the roster.
