The Guelph Storm announced Saturday morning that it has beefed up its lineup with the addition of winger Mackenzie Entwistle from the Hamilton Bulldogs.

Entwistle, 19, recently played for Team Canada at the World Juniors.

Going the other way are five draft picks: two second round picks in 2020 (Kitchener and North Bay), a third round pick in 2020 (Kitchener), a third round pick in 2021 (Windsor), and a third round pick in 2023 (Guelph).

The six-foot-four, 180-pound Georgetown native has 15 goals and 12 assists in 29 games for the Bulldogs this year.

He was originally a second round pick of Hamilton in 2015, drafted by Burnett, who was the Bulldogs’ GM at the time.

He was drafted by the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes and later traded to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Entwistle is expected to be in the Storm lineup Sunday afternoon when they take on the North Bay Battalion at the Sleeman Centre at 2 p.m.
