He wasn't at Kitchener's rookie camp earlier this month, and I haven't heard anything about him so far. Kitchener has a good track record (but far from perfect) of getting kids to report, so time will tell.
Rangers add talent to revamped blue-line
Robert Bortuzzo heads this way to complete deal with Spitfires
KITCHENER (May 31, 2006)
Robert Bortuzzo officially joins the Kitchener Rangers blue-line tomorrow.
The highly touted 17-year-old defender from Thunder Bay will be acquired in an Ontario Hockey League trade with the Windsor Spitfires, who made Bortuzzo a second-round pick last summer.
Yesterday, Rangers coach and general manager Peter DeBoer confirmed the deal has been agreed to. It will be filed with the OHL tomorrow when league rules allow players taken in last summer's draft to be swapped.
