Barrie, ON– Barrie Colts General Manager & Head Scout Jason Ford announced today that Defenseman, Matthew Sredl has committed to the team and has signed an Ontario Hockey League standard player agreement.
Sredl, 16, was playing with the Honeybaked 16U team where he has put up great numbers so far this year. The right handed shooting defenseman has tallied 10 goals and 34 assist in 46 games thus far.

“The Barrie Colts family welcomes right-shot defenceman Matthew Sredl to the line-up. We are very excited about this young prospect; who we classify as a modern-day defenseman. Matthew brings good size, mobility, hockey sense, toughness, and has the ability to be effective at both the offensive and defensive ends.”
Sredl will join the Colts this week and be wearing #18 this season.
Barrie is back in action on Thursday, January 17th as they play host to the London Knights at 7:30pm.
