  Highly touted American Luke Kirwan has told the U.S Development Program that he is leaving them to pursue his dream of playing in the OHL. The Spitfires acquired his right in a trade with the Guelph Storm, sending 2nd round picks (you can't trade 1st rounders in the OHL, so 2nd's are GOLD in trades) in 2018 and 2019. The Spits are gearing up to win it all in 2015-2016 season.

 

 

 This kid is the real deal, a wicked power forward with a 6'2 220 lb frame, and is still growing, only 16. He is NHL draft eligible for the 2016 draft, where he is said to projected to go in the top 10, but I have heard top 5 also...WHAT A STEAL!!!

It makes sense it seems junior is the fastest track maybe to the NHL.....but for the pro team drafting said prospect it is actually better for them because they are allowed to hold the player's right twice as long, 2 years versus 4 so.....................................
