The Portland Winterhawks have signed center Adam De Champlain, the team’s 10th round pick in the 200110 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.

De Champlain, 17, is playing this season for the Camrose Kodiaks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, where he has eight goals and six assists for 14 points in 38 games.

Last season in 34 games with the Sherwood Park J. Ennis Kings of the Alberta Midget Hockey League, De Champlain had nine goals and 14 assists for 23 points.

“Adam is a solid two-way forward who will add depth and experience to our group next year. Playing with Camrose, one of the elite teams in the AJHL, has really accelerated his development,” said Winterhawks General Manager & Head Coach Mike Johnston.

De Champlain will finish the season with Camrose and is expected to join the Winterhawks next season.
