The Oakville native has appeared in 29 games with Oshawa this season, recording one assist.

β€œWe would like to welcome Joseph to the Rangers,” said the team’s general manager, Mike McKenzie, in a statement. β€œHe is a big and strong defenceman who plays the game hard and can make life difficult for opposing forwards.
