Saginaw adds Tront for depth up front

The Saginaw Spirit have added depth to their offense picking up winger Kyle Tront from the Belleville Bulls today for a sixth-round pick in the 2008 OHL Priority Selection.

The 1989-born forward will join former Belleville teammates Brendan Taylor and Edward Pasquale in Saginaw.

“Kyle has NHL speed and terrific hands,” stated Spirit GM Don Edwards. “We have high expectations for Kyle as he continues to develop his skills.”

Tront was selected by the Sarnia Sting in the second round of the 2005 OHL Priority Selection, notching two goals and seven assists in 46 games during his rookie campaign. He scored four goals and three assists in 33 games for the Sting in the 2006-07 season, including a two-goal game against the Windsor Spitfires on March 4.

Tront was traded to Belleville at the start of the 2007-08 season, where in 26 games he has tallied three goals and four assists.
