When the Sarnia Legionnaires take to the ice Thursday against the London Nationals, they'll have a new face in the lineup.

Head coach Dan Rose said Monday the Jr. 'B' hockey club has signed Sarnia Sting fourth round draft pick Jake O'Donnell.

O'Donnell, a 16-year-old from Bowmanville, stands 6'1 and weighs175 pounds. In 39 regular season and tournament games last season, he scored seven goals and 12 assists for the Clarington Toros Minor Midget 'AAA' team. More than that, he helped the Toros win the OHL Gold Cup championship.

He was invited last June to take part in Hockey Canada's Under-17 Development Camp at Calgary.

"He's a big, strong defenceman, one of the more skilled 16-year-old defencemen in the province, Rose said. He added, Jake's here to develop and, hopefully, make the jump up to the Sting, either this year or next.
