Martello leaves LSSU, signs with Kitchener

Lake Superior State freshman forward Matthew Martello has been dismissed from the Laker hockey team because of poor academic progress, LSSU coach Jim Roque announced late Wednesday.

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."

Hey, I can't seem to get ahold of you guys, but was curious if you would be interested in linking to an NMU blog on your site. Drop me a line at kywhitne@nmu.edu if you've got a second. Thanks
