Dempsey Joins Kitchener Dutchmen in GOJHL

New England Hockey Journal

After being released by the Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds of the OHL last week, 2013 draft pick Mitch Dempsey has joined the Kitchener Dutchmen, a Jr. B hockey team in the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL).

The GOJHL is a 27 team league based in Southern Ontario. It is considered, at least by this list, as one of the top Junior B leagues in North America. Famous Dutchmen alums include Jonathan Cheechoo, Scott Stevens, Scott Walker, Rich Peverley (!) and Mark Scheifele. Kitchener is currently 16-3, good for first in the Mid-Western Conference.

The Dutchmen serve as the farm team for the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL. Dempsey could very well play himself into a call up and revitalize his development (I feel weird writing that about an 18 year old).
