Barrie, ON – Barrie Colts General Manager and Head Scout Jason Ford announced today that defenceman Matthew Sredl has committed to the team and has signed an Ontario Hockey League standard player agreement.
Sredl, 16, was playing with the Honeybaked 16U team where he has put up great numbers so far this year. The right handed shooting defenseman has tallied 10 goals and 34 assists in 46 games.
The Raleigh, North Carolina native was drafted by the Colts in this past OHL Priority Selection in the 12th round (236th overall).
“The Barrie Colts family welcomes right-shot defenceman Matthew Sredl to the line-up,” said Ford. “We are very excited about this young prospect who we classify as a modern-day defenceman. Matthew brings good size, mobility, hockey sense, toughness, and has the ability to be effective at both the offensive and defensive ends.”
Sredl will join the Colts this week and will wear #18 this season.
