The North York Rangers obtained defenceman Victor Polowy from the Bonnyville Pontiacs of the AJHL.

In his first season in Junior A hockey, the now 19-year-old dressed 41 regular season games and recorded a point. He also played in four playoff games for the Pontiacs as well. Victor spent the previous two seasons with North Central Predators and Barrie Colts AAA of the ETAHL where he posted 25 points in 62 games.

The Porcupine, Ont., native is coming to a situation where they is plenty of ice time up for grabs. The key reason being is North York lost five defencemen in the offseason due to graduation or NCAA commitments.

This marks the second straight year the Rangers and Pontiacs are trade partners. The last time North York send goaltender Colby Muise out west for forwards Adam Panacci and Aidan Casey.

The Rangers open up training camp on Monday August 19th. They are scheduled to play two exhibition games on weekend of Saturday August 24th against the Milton Menace and Sunday August 25th versus the Aurora Tigers. Both contests begin at 3 p.m. at the Herbert H. Carnegie Centre.
