Posted November 28th, 2013
The Bonnyville Pontiacs have completed a trade with the Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) to acquire 1994 born forward, Mike Iovanna in exchange for future considerations.
Mike Iovanna is a 5' 09" 160 pound right handed forward from Middleton, Massachusetts has a NCAA Division I commitment to the University of Massachusetts Amrherst for the 2015-16 season.
Iovanna was a standout playing at Malden Catholic High School where he registered 15 goals and 27 assists in 22 games.
"We are excited to acquire Mike," said PONTIACS General Manager, Rick SWAN. "He is a skilled, shifty forward with tremendous offensive potential. He had put up good offensive numbers in high school in Massachusetts and he will be given every opportunity to do the same thing with us." Tom Fitzgerald of the Pittsburgh Penguins told me that we have "a very special person in Mike."
