(Windsor) Windsor Spitfires Vice-President and General Manager Warren Rychel today announced the signing of U.S forward Brady Vail, Windsor’s fourth round pick, 67th overall in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection to an OHL contract and education package.
Vail, listed at 6’1 and 190 pounds, played 48 games for the Waterloo Black Hawks of the United States Hockey League (USHL), and at 15 years of age was one of the youngest players to ever suit up for Black Hawks. He also played on the 2008-2009 Detroit Compuware Minor Midget team with current Spitfire defenceman Craig Duininck and helped lead the team to the U.S. Under-16 Title, as he scored 11 goals and registered 22 points in 31 games.
“We expect big things from Brady this season. He has the potential to be a premier power forward and a force within the OHL. I’m excited to add a player of his caliber to our lineup and Brady will be a big part of our hockey club in the upcoming seasons. He will be attending our prospects development camp on July 16 and 17,” said Warren Rychel.
Vail will continue his studies at St. Anne’s High School in Lakeshore, ON next season.
