The Almaguin Spartans are thrilled to announce that just prior to the GMHL Deadline they have added an elite level defensemen in Kaelan O'Flynn.

Spartans General Manager David Forde had this to say about the addition of O'Flynn: "Kaelan is the veteran top four dman we have been looking for the past month. He brings 4 years of experience in the best Tier Two Junior Leagues in Ontario. Kaelan was a standout with Kemptville 73's in the CCHL and with the LaSalle Vipers in the GOJHL.

Last year with the Vipers he had 19 points in 23 games and in two seasons with Kemptville had 41 points in 102 games. Kaelan is a great skater, reads the play well, makes a good fast pass, competes hard and has a high hockey I.Q.

Having four top 21 year old defensemen heading into the playoffs is huge for us. To win a championship you need top veteran defensemen that can play big minutes every night and we feel we have a great top four in Morton, Austin, Whitehair and O'Flynn."

Forde continued: "We will be looking to make one more move today if possible to acquire a 98 or 99 born forward or defensemen as the deadline is midnight tonight".

Welcome to the Spartans Kaelan.
