Calgary ensured themselves of having some brand of defensive toughness in the future.
The Flames inked 2012 second-round pick, defenseman Patrick Sieloff, to his three-year entry-level deal. At 6’1″ 200 pounds, he’s already a strong, physical player for the Windsor Spitfires in the OHL and that’s something that appeals to GM Jay Feaster.
“Sieloff is an ‘old school’ style player and we welcome the edge he brings to his game,” he said. “We are very pleased to have him signed and look forward to seeing him in Penticton and at training camp.”
If his name sounds a little familiar to you perhaps it’s from his play for Team USA during their gold medal run at the 2013 World Junior Championships. In 45 games for Windsor, he had three goals and eight assists with 85 penalty minutes. A player with his kind of edge on the blue line might be useful in Calgary one day.
