Canada international wing Jeff Hassler has signed for the Ospreys ahead of the 2013-14 season.

The 21-year old has won four caps and is currently with the Canada squad competing in the Pacific Nations Cup.

Hassler currently plays for Prairie Wolf Pack in the Canadian Rugby Championship and has also represented Canada's sevens team.

"I'm really grateful to the Ospreys for offering me this chance, " Hassler said.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for me to play for the Ospreys, a great team that is consistently up there at the top of the Pro12.

"To be a part of a squad that includes so many top Welsh players, Grand Slam winners and British Lions is a really exciting prospect."

Hassler will join up with his new team-mates ahead of the new season with Italy scrum-half Tito Tebaldi joining from Zebre on a two-year deal.

Dan Biggar, Richard Fussell, Tom Grabham, Tom Isaacs, Duncan Jones, Rhys Webb, Joe Bearman, Lloyd Peers, James King, Andrew Bishop, Aaron Jarvis, Morgan Allen and Dmitri Arhip have signed new contracts with the Ospreys.
