Update On New D-Man

Due to the lack of healthy veteran defence, the 67s have acquired 19-year-old defenceman Nick Van Herpt from the Mississauga IceDogs in exchange for a 5th round pick in 2007. Posted on the official 67s website yesterday (link):

The 19-year-old defenceman split last season with the IceDogs and the Kingston Frontenacs where he spent the first two seasons of his Ontario Hockey League career.

Van Herpt tallied 5 goals and 8 assists along with 62 penalty minutes in 54 games last season which was split between Kingston and Mississauga.

“We are happy to have an experienced defenceman like Nick join our team,” said Brian Kilrea while en route to Sudbury for the 67’s regular season opener Friday night.

Van Herpt is expected to join the team on the road this weekend.
