In our second segment of ‘Getting to Know’, learn more about defenceman Trenton Bourque!
The Sudbury Wolves were without a second round draft pick in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection, however were extremely pleased to select defenseman TRENTON BOURQUE in the third round. BOURQUE is described as a smart hard working defenseman who has huge upside potential for the OHL. He makes smart passes and plays a good hard two-way game. He will be coming to the Nickel City from the Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs, where they are taught to play a complete game on both ends of the ice. The best part of BOURQUE’S game might be his transition game which should serve him very well in the fast paced OHL game.
