Lightning signs seven for '12-13 season

The Great Lakes Lightning has announced seven player signings for the upcoming 2012-13 season after the team’s mini-camp this past weekend at Great Lakes Sports City in Fraser.

Zach Boes, Rochester, Mt. Clemens Wolves U16
Jacob Bradley, Armada, Oakland Jr. Grizzlies U16
Andrew Defauw, Orion, Detroit Falcons U16
Mikey Edwards, Warren, Atlanta Jr. Knights (EJHL)
Ben Katan, Harper Woods, Michigan Mountain Cats (NA3HL)
Jeff Monfils, Washington, Cleveland Jr. Lumberjacks (NA3HL)
Andrew Shalawylo, Clinton Township, Metro Jets (NA3HL)

“I think it’s important to have local flavor on our team,” said Lightning coach-GM Mike Janish. “Not only does it give local kids the opportunity to stay close to home, but it lets their family and friends be able to come see them play on a regular basis.”
