Saginaw inks second-rounder Prophet

The Saginaw Spirit announced today that the first of the team's two second-round picks in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection has signed with the club as the Spirit have reached an agreement with defenseman Brandon Prophet, who spent this past season with the Upper Canada Cyclones Minor Midget program.

The native of Brockville, Ont., appeared in 30 games for the Cyclones, recording eight goals and 16 assists for 24 points, and was a teammate of Eric Cornel, who was selected third overall in the draft by the Peterborough Petes.

Prophet has also been selected to advance to the Ontario Under-17 team camp that is scheduled for early July.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound rearguard was in attendance at the Spirit's mini camp last month and was one of the most impressive performers among the rookie hopefuls during the three scrimmage sessions, where he posted a two-assist effort in the first of those games.
