KL Goldminers Coach & GM Marc Lafleur has added 2 more pieces to the 2016-17 GoldMiners puzzle, inking 18 yr old defenseman Alex Olscheske and ’97 born forward Damian Caringi.
18 year old Alex Olschewske, a 6′ 185 lb rugged defenseman from Ashburn, Virginia, joins the club after a great showing at the Baie-Comeau Drakkar camp in the QMJHL. Last season Alex played for the Richmond Generals of the USP3HL, finishing 5th in team scoring, with 30 pts in 36 games, including 16 goals. The team “Defensive MVP” racked up 129 pims. Coach Lafleur says Alex combines a unique pairing of skill & toughness, that will be welcomed in Kirkland Lake.
’97 born forward Damian Caringi, Mississauga born, joins us after a good season with the London Lakers of the GMHL. The 5’9′ speedster scored 38 pts in 40 games, including 16 goals. Damian’s total was good for 3rd in team scoring. Speed is the name of Damian’s game, with Coach Lafleur saying, he doubts there is anyone faster than this kid in the NOJHL.
