Forward Rutkowski signs with Plymouth

The Plymouth Whalers signed Harrison Township native Chad Rutkowski today.

The Whalers selected Rutkowski in the fifth round (93rd overall) of the 2006 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection.

“We’re glad Chad chose the OHL and are excited to have him join the team,” Plymouth coach-GM Mike Vellucci said. “He’s another big body, a scorer and a local kid.”

Last season, the 6-foot-2, 193 pound-forward tallied 12 goals and two assists for 14 points and 74 penalty minutes in 25 games for the Belle Tire midgets.

“I’m really excited to join the Whalers,” said Rutkowski. “I’m a big forward that likes to score and I try to model my game after Markus Naslund.”
