(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Express announced today the team has signed two key players for the up-coming 2017-18 season.

Making his return to the Express after being acquired from the Niagara River Lions last season, 6’ 9” forward from Blue Springs, MO, Logan Stutz will be suiting up for the Express. In accordance with team policy, terms of the contract were not announced.

Stutz appeared in 13 games for the Express last season and averaged 16.8 points, 8.46 rebounds, 1.15 assists, 1.15 steals, and 32.9 minutes per contest. At Washburn University, Stutz earned first-team All-MIAA honors and a selection to the first team All-NABC while leading the MIAA in scoring.

“Me and my family are very excited,” Stutz said. “We love everything the team did for us last year. We love the way things are going to be set up this year. And, we really enjoy the fans, they’ve been great to us.”

Windsor also announced the return of 5’ 7” guard Maurice Jones of Saginaw, MI. Jones was an iron horse for the Express in 2016-17, appearing in 47 games and averaging 30.9 minutes. The former USC Trojan and Northwood Timberwolf scored 10.53 points per game for Windsor as well as 3.57 rebounds and 7.64 assists.

“It’s always a good situation going to Windsor,” said Jones. “There’s some unfinished business. Last year I felt like we had a great team, a great group of guys.”

Stutz and Jones were both part of Windsor’s 6-player protected list.
