Welcome, Brother...

Sorry for the delay. Blogger was down most of the day.

Chris Heisenberg reported this morning that Patrick Kennedy had committed to the Big Red. Patrick (6' 3", 200) is a 1988-born forward from Dorchester, Ontario, and is playing with the St. Thomas Stars in the Western Ontario Hockey League. He is also the brother of Cornell sophmore Michael Kennedy. Patrick is currently tied for 16th in scoring in the WOHL with 20 points (13 goals, 7 assists), in only 11 games. Patrick is also tied for the league lead in powerplay goals (9) and game-winning goals (3).

According to the National Hockey League's Central Scouting, Patrick is a B-rated player (later round potential), and is the only player from the Western Ontario Hockey League to make their Players to Watch List. Heisenberg has Patrick rated as the 13th best player in the Ontario/Eastern Canada region, and has him as the highest rated player in the WOHL.

Welcome, Patrick.
