The entire Niagara IceDogs organization would like to thank graduating over-agers Brady Hinz (RW) and Daniel Murphy (G) for their commitment to the club. Although, both were unable to officially suit up after being acquired last off-season due to COVID-19 restrictions that ultimately forced the cancellation of the 2020-21 season.
Hinz, skated in 248 career games, registering 129 points (54G, 75A) between the Sarnia Sting (2016-18) and Peterborough Petes (2018-20) after being chosen in the third round of the 2016 OHL Priority Selection by the Sting. The Stratford, Ontario native committed to the University of Windsor this spring and is enrolled in Liberal Arts and Professional Studies.
Murphy, a native of Guelph, Ontario appeared in 114 career games with the Erie Otters, posting a 3.62 goals-against-average and .884 save percentage after being drafted by the organization in the 15th-round of the 2016 OHL Priority Selection.
