The Espanola Express have signed a 6’4”, 215 pound defenseman.  He’s Jace Pitawanakway of Toronto.  Express General Manager Chad Clarke has high hopes for the young defenceman.  Clarke is shooting for a break out year for Pitawanakway with the goal that he becomes a dominant defenseman in the NOJHL.  Pitawanakway spent last season with the New York Rangers Triple A program.  Express players begin arriving in Espanola later this month as they start training for the upcoming season.
