ND’s Oreskovich Departs For OHL

Sophomore Victor Oreskovich has left Notre Dame to play with the Ontario Hockey League’s Kitchener Rangers, head coach Jeff Jackson announced Sunday.

Selected in the second round, 55th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche, Oreskovich played in nine games with Notre Dame in 2004-05, scoring two goals and adding one assist for three points. In 37 games as a freshman in 2004-05, the right winger had 1-2–3.

In making the announcement, Jackson said, “Victor has informed me of his decision to leave school. After talking, we mutually agreed upon his choice. We wish him the best and support him in his decision.”

The Rangers obtained Oreskovich’s rights in a trade with the Windsor Spitfires on Nov. 24.
