STU adds OHL D-man Chris Van Laren

Troy Ryan knew he would have to upgrade his St. Thomas defense this year and he is off to a good start adding Chris Van Laren most recently of the OHL Guelph Storm. With the graduation of Keith Wynn, David Crossman, Scott Judson and Erick Tremblay you can expect that this will not be the last d-man added this year.

Van Laren "has got a bit of an edge to him," Ryan told the Daily Gleaner, "He has the abilities to play against top players, very difficult to play against." This is good news for the Tommies moving forward especially as this is the first two OHL recruits (see Sanza post below) to STU in 4 years.
