The Powassan Voodoos added some more fire power courtesy of the North Bay Battalion.
Kyle Moore, the Battalion’s 5th round pick in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection, was assigned to the Voodoos on Tuesday.
The shifty forward netted a pair of goals in 4 pre-season games with the Battalion.
Moore joins other Battalion 2014 draft picks Brendan D’Agostino and Steve Harland on the Voodoos, who are the Battalion’s Junior A affiliate based in the 9-team Northern Ontario Junior ‘A’ Hockey League.
The 16-year-old netted 13 goals along with 8 assists in 31 games last year with the Toronto Red Wings of the Greater Toronto Minor Midget Hockey League.
His older brother Bryan Moore plays with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
Moore joined the Voodoos for practice on Tuesday. Voodoos Head Coach Scott Wray believes Moore will be a key addtion to the Voodoos offence.
“He brings a scoring punch that we will need and he also likes to play on the edge,” noted Wray.
“Kyle isn’t afraid to mix it up and get under the other team’s skin.”
The Voodoos, who sport a 0-1-0-1 record, will host their home opener Friday night when the Cochrane Crunch pay a visit to the Powassan Sportsplex for the first NOJHL regular season game in the community since 1994.
Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
The Voodoos will also host their new rival, the Mattawa Blackhawks, for a game against the former North Bay Jr. A Trappers franchise.
That game will take place in Powassan on Monday, September 15th at the Powassan Sportsplex (7:30 p.m.).
