RedHawks continue to add to Cambridge crop of players

The team has acquired Cambridge native Kyle Caron
The Cambridge RedHawks have brought home another local player.

Make it seven local players suiting up for the Cambridge RedHawks this season.

The team announced they've acquired 19-year-old Cambridge native Kyle Caron from the Ontario Junior Hockey League's Niagara Falls Canucks in exchange for a player development fee.

Caron scored one goal and added four assists in 11 games for the Canucks prior to the deal. 

The forward grew up playing in the Cambridge Minor Hockey Association system, finishing with 13 goals and seven assists during his U16 season in 2019-2020.

It took just two games for Caron to find the score sheet with his new team, assisting on a Matt Fries marker in a 4-2 loss to the Ayr Centennials on Saturday night.

Cambridge now has seven players from the city on their roster as Caron joins forwards Cameron Fries, Matt Fries, Reid Gammage, Jake Skuta, Evan Silveira and defenceman Jack D'Arcy.

After splitting a pair of games to begin the new year, including a 5-2 win over Stratford on the road Friday night, the RedHawks will be back in action on Thursday when they travel to Ayr to close out a home-and-home with the Centennials.

They host the Kitchener-Waterloo Siskins on Saturday at Galt Arena Gardens at 7 p.m. to round out the week.

With 17 games remaining in the regular season, Cambridge sits fifth in the Midwestern Conference of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League with a 17-13-3 record.
