Big news from the Limestone City. The Kingston Frontenacs announced Tuesday afternoon that they have signed 18 year old Connor McGlynn. McGlynn was originally selected in the 6th round of the 2011 priority draft by the Frontenacs but had committed to the NCAA with Boston College.
The Oakville, Ontario native started his hockey career with the Junior A Oakville Blades posting 20 points in 43 games. From there he laced up for the Sioux City Musketeers for two seasons. Last year he put up 10 points in 48 games.
General Manager Doug Gilmour had this to say about his new forward: “During the season of his OHL draft year, Connor was a prolific goal scorer with the Oakville Rangers Minor Midgets. We feel Connor’s size, compete level, and ability to score goals will compliment what should be a very exciting team.”
The 6’2” McGlynn has had plenty of experience in his career as he has attended numerous USA Hockey development camps. At one time he had thoughts of playing out west but has since changed his mind.
The Kingston Frontenacs will start their 2013-2014 campaign on the road as the face the Peterborough Petes on Thursday, September 19th. From there it’s a three game home stand as the fans fill up the K-Rock Centre to see the invasion from the newly moved North Bay Battalion, Niagara Ice Dogs and Plymouth Whalers. That takes them through to October.
After signing a Ontatio Hockey League Standard Agreement, McGlynn will head to the Kingston Frontenacs training camp which opens up on August 29th.
