Saginaw adds another McDonough

The Saginaw Spirit announced the addition of Jason McDonough to the roster via a trade with the Peterborough Petes this past weekend. The Spirit sent a seventh-round pick in the 2008 OHL Priority Selection to the Petes.

“Jason is a hard-nosed left winger who can also play on the right,” stated Spirit GM Don Edwards. “He has a high skill level and also brings additional grit and toughness to the team.”

“We are excited to bring him on board and working with him to develop as a hockey player,” said Spirit head coach Todd Watson.

McDonough was selected by Peterborough in the second round of the 2005 OHL Priority Selection. In two seasons with the Petes, he tallied two goals, six assists and 72 penalty minutes in 74 regular-season games.

The left winger is a native of Etobicoke, Ont., and will join his older brother, Ryan, in Saginaw.

“We are pleased to have another member of the McDonough family in our organization,” stated Spirit president and managing partner Craig Goslin. “We look forward to contributions to the team both on and off the ice.”

This is the fourth set of brothers the Spirit have had play for the team: Jesse (2003-06) and Tyson (2004-06) Gimblett, Jean-Michel (2002-05) and Marc-Andre (2002-04) Rizk and Scott (2002-03) and Andrew (2007) Hotham.
