Florida native Lopez signs in Saginaw

The Saginaw Spirit have announced the signing of defenseman Ramon Lopez to an Ontario Hockey League contract.

Lopez was selected by the Spirit in the fifth round (96th overall) of the 2011 OHL Priority Selection.

This past season, the Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., native skated with the Toronto Titans Minor Midget program where he was a teammate of Jimmy Lodge, the Spirit’s third round pick this year. Lopez appeared in 30 games, recording 14 goals and 16 assists.

A forward last season, Lopez has been moved back to the blueline by the Spirit and is now listed as a defenseman on the Saginaw roster.
