Saginaw signs 2004 draft pick Chappell

Chris Chappell is on his way to Saginaw

The Saginaw Spirit have signed 2004 draft pick Chris Chappell to an Ontario Hockey League contract for this upcoming season. Chappell, a forward, was the Spirit's 11th round pick, 202nd overall, a year ago.

The 6-foot-4, 204-pound Chappell had eight goals and 27 assists for 35 points and was plus-8 for his hometown Pickering (Ont.) Panthers Junior A team during 2004-05 and was a teammate of Spirit goalie Ryan Daniels.

"Chris performed very well against older players in Pickering," said Spirit general manager and head coach Bob Mancini. "We expect him to add size and offense to the Spirit line-up and challenge for a top line position."

Isn't he Dave Chappell's brother? I think I can see a family resemblance. :-)
