Winkler signs with RBC

CHELMSFORD, ON – On Tuesday Morning the Rayside-Balfour Canadians are proud to announce the signing of Right Winger Darcy Winkler (Waterloo, ON) from the Waterloo Wolves of the Alliance Pavillion Midget AAA hockey league in Southwestern Ontario.

Last Season with the Waterloo Wolves Winkler had 18 goals and 22 assists in 35 games along with 72 PIMs. He also had spent time as an affilate player with the Waterloo Siskins Jr.B team in the GOJHL appearing in two regular season games and one playoff games.

Winkler stands at 6’2 and weighs 201 lbs and according to Director of Scouting Zach Schipper “He’s a big forward with lots of offensive upside, has a pro upside shot and is not afraid to battle in the dirty areas. We expect him to play hard for us and contribute offensively,”

The Canadians could see Winkler in action on Thursday as the Elliot Lake Wildcats make their first appearance of the season to the Chelmsford Arena with a puck drop slated for 7:00 pm. The game will also be available on HockeyTV.
