The Blenheim Blades acquired defenceman Ethan Waddick from the Dresden Kings in a cash deal that was announced today (Thursday).
Waddick played seven games with the Chatham Maroons (two goal, two assists) and 10 games with the Kings (two goals, five assists) this season.
He played 32 regular season games (seven goals and 12 assists) and four playoff games (five goals, four assists) in the playoffs with the Kings in 2021-22, including three goals and two assists in a 6-4 win over Petrolia in the Tier II playoffs.
Waddick, 17, was teammates with Blades’ Sam Warriner and Blenheim natives Brayden DeGelas and David Brown with the Chatham-Kent Cyclones in his minor hockey days.
Waddick’s signing leaves the Blades with nine defencemen, including newly acquired Craig Spence from the Chatham Maroons, who is expected to make his debut in January.
