The Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts have announced Collin Circelli as their third import player. Circelli, a 32 year old, native of Oshawa, is a proven scorer with plenty of professional experience. In addition to five years in the CHL, Circelli played two years in the "Q" with the Moncton Wildcats, five years in the AUS with St.FX and a year playing Division 1 in Sweden. Most recently he spent two years playing in France. Brian Casey, Director of Hockey Operations with the Cataracts says the team is excited to have acquired such a skilled centre. "We needed to fill the centre position after the loss of both Rob Hennigar and Andrew Pearcey and Collin comes highly recommended by a former coach. I expect him to be a very effective player in this league and we look forward to having him in our lineup for the start of the season."
