Jr. K-Wings make moves, shuffle roster

The Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings have announced the addition of defenseman Cameron Heath.

Heath is a 17-year-old defenseman from Troy and was a First Team All-State selection last season at Cranbrook-Kingswood High School in Bloomfield Hills.

Heath, who goes 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, was slated to start the season with the Youngstown Phantoms of the USH before he was traded to Kalamazoo for future considerations.

Heath is joining Kalamazoo to help support a defense core that has been struck with some early-season injuries.

In 26 games last season with Cranbrook-Kingswood, Heath was able to tally nine goals and 17 assists to average a point per game as a defenseman. He was also quite productive on the power play unit, notching three power-play goals and six man-up assists.

Heath should make his debut this weekend for Kalamazoo as they take on the Port Huron Fighting Falcons in two straight contests, including the home opener on Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Borgess Health Rink inside Wings West.

In another transaction, forward AJ Marcinek was traded to the Michigan Warriors for future considerations.
