Sting Acquire Rights to Defenceman Mitch Young in Exchange for Conditional Pick
Sarnia Sting General Manager Dylan Seca announced this morning that the Hockey Club has acquired the rights to defenceman Mitch Young from the Owen Sound Attack in exchange for a conditional 12th round pick in the 2023 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Priority Selection.
Standing at 6’1, 171 lbs, Young spent the 2021-22 season split between the Waterloo Wolves U18 AAA team and the Kitchener-Waterloo Siskins of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL). The right shooting Elmira, Ontario native tallied a goal and 7 assists through 15 games with the Wolves, in addition to 8 goals and 23 assists through 35 games played with the Siskins.
On the acquisition of Young’s signing rights, Seca comments:
“Our scouting staff liked Mitch’s skill and upside. We believe he has the chance to be a very good OHL player and will monitor his progress over the coming weeks.”
The Sarnia Sting are set to close out the 2022-23 preseason next week with a home-and-home battle against the Windsor Spitfires. Tickets for Saturday night’s 7:05pm matchup with the Spitfires are available to purchase through sarniasting.com and the Box Office.
