Skinner signs with Kincardine Bulldogs By Doug Kennedy

The Kincardine Bulldogs signed a really good hometown player this past week. Defenseman Dan Skinner will be one of the best players in the Pollock Division this year. Skinner played for the Bulldogs as a 16-yearold when they won their last league championship. He then played for the Listowel Cyclones for two years and they won the Cherry Cup both years. The Cyclones also took home the All-Ontario Junior B title in his second year.
Last winter he played Junior B in LaSalle while attending Windsor University. Dan is practicing with the University team this year. Skinner got off to a good start last Friday night in Wa l k e r t o n , scoring two goals and adding one assist in a Bulldogs 6-2 win. Brett Burrows, Jake Traynor, Bryce McFadden and Liam Colhoun all added singles in the win. On Saturday night, the Bulldogs lost 4-1 to the Wingham Ironmen, despite out-shooting them 33-26. Mike Fiegehen scored the lone goal for the Bulldogs. Mitchell plays at the Davidson Centre this Friday night at 8:30 p.m. The Bulldogs travel to Mount Forest Saturday night for an 8 p.m. game. Ryker Killins was off to Tuscon for the American League camp this past weekend. He has signed with the East Coast league in Utah, but is hoping to get some time in the American league. Killins moved to Kincardine from Wawa when he was 14. He played in the Huron Perth AAA system, where he was drafted by the Windsor Spitfires. He ended up playing Junior B in Stratford, where he received a hockey scholarship at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan. He just graduated last year and finished the year in the East Coast league playing in South Carolina. * * * The start of October brings baseball playoffs. There is still a race for a wildcard in the American league between Tampa Bay, Cleveland and Oakland for two spots. The Blue Jays could be spoilers this weekend when they host Tampa Bay for three games.
