Spinozzi Named Sarnia Sting Captain

The Sarnia Sting has named overage defenceman Kevin Spinozzi as team captain for the remainder of the 2016-17 OHL season.

Jordan Kyrou, Anthony Salinitri, and Jaden Lindo will take on a leadership role with the club as well; joining Alex Black and Ryan McGregor as assistant captains.

Spinozzi was originally drafted in the second round of the 2012 OHL Priority Selection by the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

He was acquired by the Sting in a deal that took place just days before the 2013/14 trade deadline. Tyler Hore and Bryan Moore went to the Hounds.

Through five OHL seasons, the Granby, QC native has played in 237 regular season games (174 with the Sting) – tallying 21 goals and 89 points while boasting a career plus/minus rating of +50.

He joins former Sting captains that included Craig Duininck, Nathan Chiarlitti, Matt Martin, Trevor Letowski, and Ryan Wilson.
