PICCINICH & SHERWOOD COMMIT TO KNIGHTS

London Knights General Manager Basil McRae announced today that the London Knights 6th round (118th overall) pick in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection, JJ Piccinich, as well as undrafted free agent forward Kole Sherwood have both committed to and entered into Ontario Hockey League Standard Player’s Agreements with the organization.  

JJ PICCINICH:
Piccinich, a highly competitive power forward, was also a 4th round, 103rd overall draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.  Last season, Piccinich played for Boston University.  In his freshman campaign, he recorded 4 points (1 goal, 3 assists) in 25 games for the Terriers, helping the team capture the Hockey East Title.

The 6’0” 184lbs winger from Paramus, NJ played in the USHL with the Youngstown Phantoms prior to that.  In 60 games, Piccinich tallied 58 points (27 goals, 31 assists) and racked up 31 PIMs.  Piccinich also suited up for a game with the US National U18 team in the 2013-14 season.

Piccinich will join the London Knights in late August for training camp and will wear #84 for the team next season.

KOLE SHERWOOD:
Sherwood, a dynamic offensive threat, recorded impressive numbers with his hometown Ohio Blue Jackets U18 Team this past season.  In 31 games played, the 6’ 176 pound winger contributed 48 points (22 goals, 26 assists) and 29 PIMs and was awarded the league’s Top Scorer for the 2014-15 season.

After being passed over in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Sherwood made history for himself and the Ohio Blue Jackets Hockey Association when he signed a 3-year NHL Entry Level contract with his hometown Columbus Blue Jackets in July.  This signing made Sherwood the first ever Columbus Blue Jacket prospect to have been developed in their local minor hockey association.

Sherwood will join the London Knights in late August for training camp and will wear #67 for the team next season.
