The Saginaw Spirit are pleased to announce the signing of Sam Povorozniouk, their second round pick in the 2011 OHL Priority Selection (36th overall).
Povorozniouk, a 5’8”, 165 pound winger from Northbrook, Illinois scored 11 goals and 15 assists for 26 points with the Chicago Steel Jr. A team last season. Povorozniouk was recently selected to play for the US Under-16 Team which will compete internationally this August. He will wear the number ‘95’ this season for the Spirit.
According to the OHL Scouting Report, Povorozniouk is a highly skilled and smart offensive minded forward who possesses a ton of natural ability. He has high end stickhandling skills, great footwork, speed with and without the puck, and excellent acceleration with a special ability to find that extra gear to create separation from defenders.
