The Rumours Were True, Captain Downey on the Move


Mississauga, ON – Rumours were circulating this past week that short-time Mississauga Hounds captain Jeff Downey would be on the move. Those were quickly squashed by both management and the player himself but apparently someone was being less than honest.


Downey, who was leading the Hounds in scoring as a defenseman, was moved to the Houston Bulls in exchange for a first and a sixth round pick. He should immediately slot in on the top pairing for the playoff bound Bulls and should have a big impact immediately. Downey plays a two-way game with solid defensive skills and a great breakout pass that should greatly improve the Bulls offense. In 30 games for the Hounds this season Downey had posted 4 goals and 14 assists for 18 points. He was also an abysmal -25.


Downey has had a solid developmental year and is being placed by many scouts in the top five of the upcoming S68 VHL Entry draft. He came into this season as a relative unknown before being picked up in the 4th round by the Hounds. He has flourished under their developmental staff and is currently ranked 5th in the International Scouting Service pre-draft rankings.
