Vail commits to Memorial Cup champions

The Windsor Spitfires today announced the signing of forward Brady Vail, Windsor’s fourth round pick (67th overall) in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection to an OHL contract and education package.

Vail, listed at 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, played 48 games for the Waterloo Black Hawks of the United States Hockey League, and at 15 years of age was one of the youngest players to ever suit up for Black Hawks.

The Northville native also played on the 2008-2009 Detroit Compuware Minor Midget team with current Spitfire defenceman Craig Duininck and helped lead the team to the U.S. Under-16 title, as he scored 11 goals and registered 22 points in 31 games.

“We expect big things from Brady this season," said Windsor GM Warren Rychel. "He has the potential to be a premier power forward and a force within the OHL. I’m excited to add a player of his caliber to our lineup and Brady will be a big part of our hockey club in the upcoming seasons."
