The Almaguin Spartans are happy to announce that have acquired 2002 Quebec Power Forward Sebastian Del Balso from the West Nipissing Lynx for a 2024 8th Round Draft Pick and a PDF. Last season Del Balso suited up for the Bancroft Rockhounds (GMHL), Vegreville and Barrhead (CAJHL), where he put up 13 goals and 21 assists for 34 points, and 58 penalty minutes in 52 games.
Spartans General Manager David Forde had this to say about the addition of Del Balso “Sebastian is a veteran forward with great size at 6’2 and 210 pounds. He plays a 200-foot game, plays physical and can contribute offensively on a nightly basis.
Sebastian proved in Bancroft last year as a 20-year-old that he can play in a top 6 role in the GMHL and I feel with another season under his belt and a great off season where he has attended professional level training camps, that Sebastian can have a big season.
I think Sebastian can put up a point per game this season and be matched up against other teams’ top lines defensively. We also feel he can be a leader on and off the ice for our younger players.
We will have a lot of veteran additions to announce over the coming weeks heading into the season and we are happy with the direction our roster is heading.”
