The Oshawa Generals have acquired forward Kyle Bollers from the Saginaw Spirit in exchange for a draft selection.
In exchange for Bollers, the Spirit will receive a 12th round selection in the 2023 priority player selection.
An Oshawa native, Bollers played his minor hockey with the Oshawa Minor Generals and will now fulfill a childhood dream when he suits up for his hometown team as a member of the OHL club.
“Playing for Oshawa is a dream come true – I remember coming to the Gens games Sunday nights growing up, so getting to join the team is something I’m excited about. I’m happy to be getting back into the league and I’m lucky and grateful it’s the Generals giving me that opportunity,” said Bollers.
Prior to joining the Gens, Bollers played two seasons with the Spirit before beginning the year with the Aurora Tigers of the OJHL for the 2018-19 season. In 19 games, Bollers has tallied seven goals and 20 assists for 27 points in 19 games with Aurora.
So far with the Gens, Bollers has scored one goal in three games. His first goal came against the Peterborough Petes on Nov. 1.
Bollers is a left wing who shoots left handed. He is 5’11” and weighs 170 pounds. He was born March 12, 1999 in Oshawa. He entered the league with the Spirit as a free agent in 2016.
