DRYDEN -- The Dryden Ice Dogs of the Superior
International Junior hockey League didn’t have to look very far in their
first major signing of the off-season.
The Ice Dogs have announced the signing of local product Cody Kaus for the upcoming 2013-14 SIJHL campaign.
The 18-year-old Dryden native spent the past two seasons with the Kenora Thistles of the Manitoba ‘AAA’ Midget Hockey League.
The 5’11, 155-pound stay-at-home defenseman played in 75 games and
registered five goals and 16 assists, while accumulating 18 penalty
minutes helping Kenora win back-to-back Hockey Northwestern Ontario
district midget AAA crowns.
Kaus also played three games with the Ice Dogs as an affiliated
player last season where he picked up an assist in his very first junior
game while earning third star honours in that contest.
“It’s good to sign a local player because we haven’t had too many on
the team as of late,” stated Dryden general manager Brad Boyko.
“I believe Kaus can step in right away and the organization loves what he brings to the table,” added the Ice Dogs GM.
For his part, Kaus is excited to be a member of the Dryden Ice Dogs.
“I can’t wait to play at home and start the season,” offered the rookie D-man.
“I learned a lot from my three games in junior last season and know that I will have to step up my game.”
The club is expected to make more player announcements in the coming weeks.
