Jr. K-Wings get vet Polin from Port Huron

The Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings have traded David Parrottino and future considerations to the Port Huron Fighting Falcons in exchange for forward Kody Polin.

Parrottino had just recently joined the Jr. K-Wings from the Lincoln Stars of the USHL. The 18-year-old only played three contests in a Kalamazoo sweater after the move. In each of those three games, he was held out of the points column and racked up four penalty minutes.

Polin, a 20-year-old, two-year veteran forward of the NAHL, adds more experience to the Jr. K-Wings' lineup and a knack for the back of the net. The Trenton native tallied 24 goals and 14 assists last season for 38 points, enough to leave him tied for second on the division champion Fighting Falcons.

Through the course of this season, Polin has 14 points (12 goals, two assists) in 38 games and has shown an element of toughness, having registered 85 penalty minutes.

Ironically enough, Polin played his last game with Port Huron against Kalamazoo, as the Jr. K-Wings defeated the Fighting Falcons 2-1 on Wednesday night.

The Jr. K-Wings anticipate Polin to make an immediate impact.

“We’re looking for Kody to help produce offense here in Kalamazoo," said Kalamazoo coach Marc Fakler. "He is a proven goal scorer in this league."
