Martello, a 6-foot, 205-pounder from North York, Ont., was the team's second-leading scorer among freshmen with two goals and seven assists. He played in 18 of 20 games during the first half of the LSSU season.
Then today, the OHL's Kitchener Rangers announced they signed Martello. Kitchener drafted Martello last May in the sixth round of the OHL Priority Selection.
"We are excited to have a player of Matthew's character joining the Rangers organization," said Rangers' coach-GM Pete DeBoer. "Matthew looks forward to the opportunity to continue combining his athletic and academic goals in our community."
