Dylan D’Agostino is returning home to play the 2020-21 season with the Powassan Voodoos.
D’Agostino suited up with the Voodoos as a 16-year-old in 2016-17, helping the team to the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League (NOJHL) championship. After that, the North Bay native played in the OHL with the Hamilton Bulldogs where he recorded one goal in 28 games over the course of two seasons.
D’Agostino is looking forward to returning to the place where it all began four years ago.
“I chose to return to the Voodoos to finish my junior career as they gave me my first opportunity to play junior as a 16-year-old, a year I will never forget having won an NOJHL Championship and that incredible 12-0 playoff run,” recalls the former Midget AAA Trappers forward, adding that the decision to return home was an easy one to make.
Voodoos GM Chris Dawson says the newest forward is a welcome addition to the team.
“Dylan is a competitor and an elite scorer,” said Dawson. “We expect him to make a huge impact for us when our new season begins.”
D’Agostino, had 13 goals and 16 assists totalling 29 points in 29 games with the Caledonia Corvairs of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL) last year.
The forward skated with a small group of Voodoos players on Sunday night at Memorial Gardens, the team says.
The Voodoos are still waiting on direction from the NOHA, NOJHL, OHF and Hockey Canada as to when the 2020-21 season will begin.
