Hat Tricks Acquire Forward Kyle Heitzner from Baton Rouge for Cash

by Doug Lattuca

DANBURY — The Danbury Hat Tricks have acquired forward Kyle Heitzner from the Baton Rouge Zydeco for cash.

The 5-foot-10-inch center has made a few stops around the FPHL playing for Watertown in 2021-22 (7 GP, 4-5-9) and Delaware (1 GP) and Columbus (4 GP, 1-2-3) last season.

Most notably, Heitzner spent three seasons (2016-2019) in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), highly regarded as one of the premier junior hockey leagues. The Brechin, Ontario native played two seasons with the Barrie Colts before wrapping up his OHL career with the Mississauga Steelheads. With the Colts, Heitzner suited up in 110 games and compiled 20 points and 79 penalty minutes. 

"Kyle is a very versatile player," said Hat Tricks Head Coach and General Manager Billy McCreary. "He can play center or wing and has the ability to be a driver of our offense. He plays a gritty style of game that will translate well here in Danbury." 

Prior to joining the FPHL, Heitzner dressed for the Quad City Storm where he accumulated five points over 14 games.
