In preparation of an all-important game three of the Central Division best-of-seven Final, the Manitoba Moose have announced that defenceman Logan Stanley has joined the team.

Stanley, a 6-foot-7, 235 defender, saw his Ontario Hockey League season come to an end as the Sioux Ste. Marie Greyhounds defeated his Kitchener Rangers last week. Stanley had since been re-assigned to the Moose in order to continue playing hockey as deep into the spring as possible.

The 19-year-old collected 15, goals, 42 points and 111 penalty minutes in 61 regular season games for Kitchener this past season. He also produced four goals, 16 points and 20 penalty minutes in 19 postseason games.

The Waterloo, Ontario native was drafted 18th overall by the Winnipeg Jets in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft – their second selection of the first round (Patrik Laine).

Stanley’s presence will certainly be felt if he does draw into the Moose lineup for any of their remaining playoff games. As Manitoba’s rookie Defenceman of the Year Sami Niku had to be helped off the ice in game two of the series following a punishing hit, there is a window of opportunity for the Kitchener Rangers’ Playoff Co-MVP.

After falling behind 2-0 at home to the Rockford IceHogs, Manitoba has taken to the road in looking to pick up their first victory of the series. Games three and four are scheduled for Wednesday and Friday evenings, with the opening face-offs coming at 7:05 P.M. central.
