Sarnia, ON- Sarnia Sting General Manager Dylan Seca announced today that the Hockey Club has received a commitment from 2020 7th overall Import selection, Alex Geci
After being selected with the Club's first-round pick in the 2020 CHL Import Draft, the 6’2” Slovakian forward has signed a CHL agreement, committing to play for the Sarnia Sting when the Ontario Hockey League returns to the ice.
“I will give the Sting and the Sarnia community my maximum effort each night to help the team win. I am a hard-working person and try to bring positive energy to the team. I cannot wait to come to Sarnia and play in front of all the fans. I am very happy to be part of this organization.” comments Geci on his commitment.
