The Powassan Voodoos have added forward Kyle den Ouden from the Central Ontario Wolves U18 AAA team.
At 6’1″ and 191 pounds, den Ouden brings some size up front for the Voodoos program.
“I chose Powassan because I feel they will give me the best opportunity to develop into the player I want to become, as well as the fact that they have a great team every year and I can’t wait to be part of that,” said den Ouden, who is also looking forward to playing for the fans at the Powassan Sportsplex. “I’ve heard a lot about what the atmosphere is like and I’m really excited to experience that.”
Mike Mackley, the Voodoos VP of Hockey Operations, describes den Ouden as a forward who is mature, has character and should start contributing on day one.
“Kyle is a big and strong winger who plays a power game,” Mackley says. “He has an elite release and shot. His combination of size, skill and smarts make him difficult to defend in the offensive zone.”
The Voodoos look forward to getting on the ice this summer once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted in preparation for a return to play in the fall of 2021.
