The Stoney Creek Generals announced several new additions to their roster on Thursday. The additions come on the heels of four other new faces in the locker room after the ACH dispersal draft following the temporary suspension of operations of Thorold in the upcoming season.
Matthew Bragg will don the blue, white, and red in the fall when the veteran joins the Generals. Bragg joins the Generals after an Allan Cup victory last season with the Grand Falls Windsor Cataracts. Prior to that Bragg played in the ACH with the Dundas Real McCoys from 2015-2017.
Bragg played 211 games in the OHL from 2004-2008 and 71 games in the NLSHL from 2011-2015.
Also becoming a General is 32 year old Rob Hisey who joins the Generals after playing in the EBEL with 288 games played and 242 points. Through his career Hisey has played 270 games with 309 points in the OHL and played 96 games in the AHL with 73 points.
Finally the club announced the signing of Philip Desimone who joins the Generals after playing in the AHL and NLB in Switzerland. Desimone was drafted in the third round by the Washington Capitals in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and played for the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs in the 2011-12 season. Desimone had 14 goals and 19 assists in Hamilton.
The Stoney Creek Generals will open their season at home on Saturday, October 14th at 7:15 PM from the Gateway Ice Centre when they host the Brantford Blast.
