Wolves Draft Well in 2017 OHL Priority Selection
The Sudbury Wolves are pleased to report that the 2017 OHL Priority Selection was a successful day for the organization as they welcomed many new prospects and their families to the team and the city. Wolves Hockey is determined to build on the successful 2016-17 season where the team’s current roster learned valuable lessons and got a taste of OHL playoff action.
With the new recruits to be added to the roster of current players and prospects, the hockey team is confident that the foundation of a competitive team is here and there are exciting things to look forward to for fans in the Nickel City.
“Every draft has its wins and losses, where we picked up some great young talent this year that we are extremely excited about and we also lost out on some competitive players that other teams rightly had an interest in,” said Barclay Branch. “Overall we are extremely pleased with the results of the day. The current line-up has been complemented by a new group of talented drafts that add size, skill and a bright future for the Sudbury Wolves organization. Today is the culmination of the year-long work by a dedicated scouting staff spending countless hours through the province watching, meeting and analyzing young hockey talent. The dedication of all parts of the organization has shown to creating a competitive team for the city to enjoy is well on its way.”
