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.
