Voodoos acquire new starting goalie Shayne Battler from the Fort Erie Meteors

The Powassan Voodoos have acquired goaltender Shayne Battler from the Fort Erie Meteors of the GOJHL. The 6’3”, 200-pound goaltender had a 3.40 goals against average to go along with a .904 save percentage in 33 regular season games with the Junior ‘B’ club last year.

Battler is a former 6th round pick of the OHL’s Sarnia Sting. Voodoos Associate GM Mike Mackley says Battler is a big bodied goaltender who moves very well and utilizes his size to his advantage. He added that Battler shows a maturity and poise between the pipes that allows him to thrive in a tough environment.

The big southpaw netminder believes he can fill the void left by the recent departure of last year’s starter and NOJHL MVP Nate McDonald, who left in a trade with Whitby of the OJHL earlier this week. Battler says he’s looking forward to the challenge of stepping into the role of starter, and having a very successful season with the Voodoos. He’s expected to meet his new teammates on July 8th and 9th, when the team hosts a Prospects Camp in Barrie.
