The Windsor Spitfires have acquired overage centre Jamie Lewis from the North Bay Battalion. In exchange, the Spitfires have sent their 4th Round Pick in 2017, 7th Round Pick in 2016 and 12th Round Pick in 2019 the other way.

Lewis, 20, is a 5’10, 204-pound native of Richmond Hill, Ontario that spent three full seasons with the Brampton / North Bay Battalion. In 195 career games, the right-shooting centreman posted 25 goals and 47 assists along with 106 penalty minutes and a +14 rating.

General Manager Warren Rychel says Lewis will add much-needed experience and grit to the club’s forward group.

“With news of Brady Vail signing his AHL deal, we really needed some stability down the middle of the ice,” Rychel said. “Jamie is a hard-nosed, two-way player that can contribute in all aspects of the game. He was outstanding in North Bay’s 2014 OHL Playoffs run. He’s exactly the type of older, experienced player we need, and he’s been very well-coached throughout his junior career.”
