Namagoose Returns To Kirkland Lake

Kirkland Lake GoldMiners Head Coach & General Manager Trevor Ritchie has pulled off another trade, bringing back fan favorite Linden Namagoose, from the MJHL.

The 19 yr old, 6’4″ 200 lb, Wemindji, Quebec defenseman, spent last season with the Amherst Ramblers of the Maritime Junior Hockey League, where an injury plagued season limited Namagoose to just 6 games.

In the 2017-18 season, Namagoose appeared in 38 games for the GoldMiners, scoring 5 times adding 6 assists as well as being named to the NOJHL  All-Star squad, for the Eastern Canada  Cup.

Coach Ritchie is elated to add a veteran defenseman, who’s had success in this league. Defense Coach Tom Sinclair is thrilled as well, saying “Linden has skills you just can’t teach, he’s an effortless skater, gonna be fun to work with him again.”

Namagoose says,” I’m happy to be back in KL, and ready to make some noise this season.”
