The Windsor Spitfires are adding an 18-year-old Detroit-area defenceman to their roster.

Jalen Chatfield is from Ypsilanti, Michigan, and spent his last two seasons playing with the Belle Tire U-18 program in Detroit.

Spits GM Warren Rychel describes the 6’0”, 180 lbs. player as a good, all-around, puck-moving defenceman. “It’s going to take him a while to get used to our league. But when he does, he should be a very good player.”

In 37 games with Belle Tire last year, Chatfield racked up 11 goals and 15 assists.
