Wildcats land veteran forward Liam Dunda
The Moncton Wildcats are excited to announce the acquisition of left winger Liam Dunda. Liam was signed as a free agent after being placed on waivers from the Ontario Hockey League.
Dunda is a four year veteran of the Ontario Hockey League and will be a key impact player for the team this year. Standing at 6’5 weighing 215 lbs, Liam will be a strong presence on the ice, as well as a great leader for the team. The soon to be 20-year-old was assistant captain last season and will look to make a positive impact here in Moncton.
After being drafted to the OHL in 2013 by the Plymouth Whalers, he would go onto play for two more teams, the Owen Sound Attack and most recently the Sudbury Wolves. Last season Liam put up 26 points in 65 games, and to date has played in 232 games for 53 points in the OHL.
Director of Hockey Operations, Roger Shannon had this to say about the new acquisition. “Liam is a big presence on the ice, drives the net and has a great character, which is what interested us most. We have a young group and we want strong leadership and Liam is one of those guys, along with some of our other older players like Nick Welsh we will have that group. Liam is a draft pick of the St. Louis Blues who didn’t sign and we want to give him the chance to sign that pro contract he is looking for.”
Liam will be in the lineup tomorrow night as your Wildcats host the Charlottetown Islanders at 7:00 p.m. at the Superior Propane Centre. For tickets stop by the Wildcats office from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. or get them at game time at the Superior Propane Centre.
