Noah Heinrich joining Pontiacs for remainder of season

The Bonnyville Pontiacs are thrilled to announce the full-time acquisition of a young player.

Noah Heinrich, who has been an affiliate playing with OHA Edmonton, will join the Bonnyville Pontiacs for the remainder of the 2021-22 season.

The 2005 born defenceman has appeared in six games with the Yaks this season, including scoring his first AJHL goal on Tuesday night against the Drayton Valley Thunder.

“Noah is a great person and elite skater with high IQ and a great stick who defends extremely well,” said Coach and General Manager Rick Swan. “We are excited to bring Noah up into our lineup to help us down the stretch as we approach the playoffs.”  

The OHA Edmonton product played parts of three seasons with the prep school after coming from the Lloydminster Bobcats U15AAA team. In 12 games, Heinrich has four assists in 21-22.

The Pontiacs are off to Brooks to play the Bandits on Friday night and Drumheller on Saturday.
