ESPANOLA, ON – The Espanola Express Jr. A Hockey Club are proud to announce the signing of Left Winger Nicholas Faught from Garson, Ontario.
Faught attended the Express Spring Camp in Sudbury, Ontario during the second weekend in May and caught the eye of the Express staff. Last season he led the Sudbury Nickel Capital Wolves Midget AAA in scoring 11 times and adding 14 helpers for a total of 25 points in 36 regular season games in the Great North Midget League. During the playoffs he tallied four goals and five assists in 10 games helping the Nickel Capital Wolves reach the Great North Midget League finals for the fourth consecutive season.
Fans may remember Faught as he was also an AP with the Rayside-Balfour Canadians scoring in his only NOJHL appearance on January 27th against the Espanola Express.
He was a teammate of the Express latest defensive recruit A.J. Favot with the Nickel Capital Wolves last season and will be teammates for the fifth consecutive season.
