Tucker Shields during a weekend intrasquad game at the Powassan Sportsplex
The Powassan Voodoos have bolstered their offence picking up 19-year-old Tucker Shields from the Rockland Nationals of the CCHL in a trade, the club announced Monday.
The Ottawa area product netted 8 goals and 9 assist for 17 points in 51 games with the Nationals of the CCHL last season.
“I like Powassan, they have a great reputable hockey program, and with coach Peter coming in to coach, I know and trust Peter, he is going to help us win a championship and I want to be a part of that,” said Shields.
“What I hope to bring to the team is grit, energy along with smart 200 foot hockey. I want to get some wins, score some goals and play well defensively too. I want to be a great leader as well and I want to support him (coach Peter) in that.”
Goulet, Voodoos head coach and VP of hockey operations is excited to have Shields join the Voodoos.
“He is a great addition to our squad having played the last two seasons with the Rockland Nationals in the CCHL and was an assistant captain for them for them last season,” noted Goulet.
“Tucker brings experience, size, speed, skill and most importantly compete to every game he plays in, we are very fortunate to have him join our team for the upcoming season.”
Shields joined the Voodoos for their training camp in Powassan this weekend.
