WATERLOO- Waterloo native and Siskins 2nd leading goal scorer from the 2014-2015 season Danny Hanlon has agreed to play his overage season with the Trenton Golden Hawks of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL).


Danny spent the last 3 season dominating the score sheet at the Waterloo Memorial Rec Centre and various other arenas in the GOJHL’s Midwestern Conference loop. In 148 regular season games, Hanlon has averaged just under a point-per-game finishing with 135 points. A total of 100 of those points came on 5v5 even strength play. In 37 Playoff games, Hanlon has put up 42 points.


During the 2013-2014 season, Hanlon was a big part of the Cherrey Cup Victory over the Stratford Cullitons. In 6 games in the Midwestern Conference Finals, Hanlon put up 8 points, 1 of those points was a crucial game winning goal to put the Siskins up in the series 2-1.


Danny is a very offensive minded player but is also one of the more responsible defensive players in the GOJHL as he is an expert at killing penalties and playing in his own end. With great foot speed, great hands, and great vision,  Danny has developed strong puck protection and great possession skills. His compete level is extreme and he is someone rookies can model their games after.


With Danny gone as well as captain Christian Mroczkowski and very likely Kyle Betts, the Siskins are going to have a few openings in the top 6. I’d expect to see Evan Kearns and Gary Mantz to step in immediately and picked up where they left off last year but nonetheless it makes for an interesting training camp.


Good luck in Trenton Danny.
