Saginaw inks free agent Ogilvie

The Saginaw Spirit announced the signing of free agent Jordan Ogilvie yesterday.

The Ancaster, Ontario native played the 2006-07 season with the OPJHL's Oakville Blades, notching two goals and 10 assists in 45 games.

“He is a gritty competitor who brings great character to the Spirit organization,” stated Spirit GM Don Edwards. “He is a no-nonsense player who may become one of the hardest hitting players in the league.”

The signing reunites Ogilvie and Edwards, the former vice-president, GM and head coach of the Blades, in Saginaw.

Spirit head coach Todd Watson expressed similar thoughts on Ogilvie in saying “Jordan is a hard-nosed kid that's going to battle and compete every night.”
