Jr. K-Wings add forward DeKorte

The Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings have announced the addition of forward Davis DeKorte.

The 18-year-old forward was dealt to Kalamazoo at the end of the trade deadline period in the NAHL for future considerations.

DeKorte, a DeWitt native, joins Kalamazoo late in a rookie season that has included 26 games with the Janesville Jets. In those contests, DeKorte has posted seven points on three goals (one of which a game-winner) and four assists. He has also played to a plus-9 rating. DeKorte has also been very well disciplined this season, having only served two penalty minutes.

“Davis is a young forward with good size and strength," said Kalamazoo coach Marc Fakler. "He will add to our depth at forward as we head into the stretch of our season.”

DeKorte will likely make his Kalamazoo debut tomorrow night as the Jr. K-Wings face off against the Traverse City North Stars at 6:35 p.m. in Traverse City.
