Barrie, ON– Barrie Colts General Manager & Head Scout Jason Ford announced today that Defenceman, Nathan Allensen has committed to the team and has signed an Ontario Hockey League standard player agreement.
“We are pleased to welcome Nate Allensen to the Barrie Colts family” said Colts General Manager Jason Ford.
“Nate will bring stability to the back end and will be a key contributor in a variety of facets as he gains experience in the OHL. He is a smart, puck-moving defenseman that skates well and sees the ice extremely well. He has logged key minutes on the power-play throughout his minor hockey, and brings a calming presence to the back end because of his patience with the puck.”
