More news for the Port Huron Prowlers as their season draws near. The team announced this week the signing of Drew Anderson and Robin Yew. Anderson is a 21-year-old native of Manitoba who spent time last season splitting between the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League and the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. Finding ice time as both a center and a wing, Anderson was able to net 13 goals and assisted on 22 between both leagues. Yew is a 23-year-old native of Saskatchewan who also played in the SJHL two seasons ago. Yew played overseas in Sweden last season and as a defenseman appeared in 29 games while racking up 8 assists. Coach Joe Pace says both add more youth to the roster i to help combat the long grind of the season. The Prowlers will first drop the puck at McMorran Arena on November 8th when they take on the Columbus River Dragons.
