Second-round pick Kyle McDonald commits To Windsor Spitfires

Kyle McDonald has committed to the Windsor Spitfires, agreeing to terms on a Standard OHL Player and Education Package.

McDonald, 16, was a 2nd round pick (#25 overall) in April’s 2018 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection. The Ottawa native had a big 2017-18 season with the hometown Jr Senators Midget AAA club, scoring 25 goals and adding 21 assists along with 50 penalty minutes in 40 games.

General Manager Warren Rychel says McDonald is a prototypical power forward (6’4, 181) with a complete game that has a bright future in the OHL.

“He’s a two-way player and has an excellent shot,” Rychel said. “We’re looking forward to him contributing to our lineup in the near future. He’s an exciting player and is going to score some goals.”

McDonald will be at training camp, which, as usual, will begin in late August. Firm dates will be announced later in the summer.
