Saginaw native Brendan Kischnick signed an Ontario Hockey League standard player agreement this afternoon to play hockey for the 2017 defending OHL champion Erie Otters for the upcoming 2017-18 OHL season. 


Back in April, Kischnick was selected by the Otters in the sixth round of the 2017 OHL priority selection draft after a productive minor midget season playing for the U16 Oakland Jr. Grizzlies in the Tier 1 Elite Hockey League.


The 5-foot-9 165-pound, right-shooting defenseman had 12-points (1-goal, 11-assists) in 31 games for the Oakland Jr. Grizzlies last season, and put together a great performance, scoring 2-goals in 4-games for TPH Thunder in the 2016-17 OHL Cup tournament, while also scoring 1-goal in 3-games for Team Kelly at the 2016-17 USA Select-15 tournament. 


Kischnick, who was born in Saginaw and grew up in Freeland began playing hockey at the Greater Saginaw Area Hockey Association where he became a member of the 01' junior Spirit hockey program.


The Otters begin defense of its 2017 J. Ross Robertson Cup championship on the road against the Peterborough Petes on Thursday Sep. 21, at the Peterborough Memorial Centre in Peterborough, ON.


Kischnick will first face the Saginaw Spirit on Sat. Nov. 11, at the Erie Insurance Arena in Erie, PA., however, the date he will likely have circled on his calendar is Nov. 19, when his Otters make the first trip to Saginaw for a 5:30 pm Sunday afternoon game at the Dow Event Center.
