Castle had 13 goals and 20 points in 30 games for the last place Ice Dogs this season. “Aiden is a really good two-way player with solid Hockey IQ.” Bowler said, in a statement released by the team. “He can play in any situation and he is a talented forward that can play anywhere in the lineup.”
Dionicio, who played for Switzerland at the World Juniors, is in his second OHL season after being picked 18th overall in the CHL import draft in 2021. He has 4 goals and 3 assists in 17 games this season.
