Spitfires sign defenceman to OHL package

The Windsor Spitfires have picked up a reinforcement on their blue line.

The OHL club announced Thursday that they have signed defenceman James Jodoin to a standard league player and education package.

From Oakville, Ont., the 6’3″, 190-pound Jodoin had a strong 2018-2019 season with the Oakville Rangers Minor Midget Club. He scored four goals for 21 points in 31 regular season games. Jodoin also scored four goals and an assist in eight playoff games.

“He definitely had a strong season and showed some big improvements in all aspects of his game,” said Spitfires general manager and co-owner Warren Rychel. “We like that he’s a right-handed shot, his size and all-around game and think he has a bright future in the league.”

Jodoin was the Spits’ fourth-round pick, 67th overall, in this year’s OHL Priority Selection.
