Whalers call up Donati from London midgets

The Plymouth Whalers have called up defenseman Anthony Donati, selected in the sixth round (109th overall) in last spring's OHL Priority Selection, from the London Junior Knights midgets.

This season, Donati (pictured) has scored 10 goals with 14 assists for 24 points and 110 penalty minutes in 36 games.

Donati - no relation to former OHL players Justin and Tyler Donati - will wear No. 21 and is expected to make his Whalers debut Thursday night in Peterborough.

In other Plymouth news, the team acquired the overage rights to Chris Stewart over the weekend from the Kingston Frontenacs for a 15th-round pick in 2011. Stewart is currently with the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League (under contract with the Colorado Avalanche after he was their first-round pick in 2006) and it is very doubtful he'll report to the Whalers.
