9 Wolves Drafted in OHL Priority Selection - New Association Record Set
Submitted By WMHA on Saturday, April 9, 2016
The 2016 OHL Priority Selection saw the Waterloo Wolves set a new record for their association with Nine (9) OHL draft picks!
The Wolves had the most players drafted from the ALLIANCE and the 4th most players from any team in Ontario.
The 2015-16 Wolves have broken the record set by the 2007 draft class, which sent eight (8) Wolves to the OHL. That year included names like NHLers Mike Latta (Washington Capitals) and Mike Halmo (New York Islanders) and 2016 University of Waterloo Athlete of the Year, Colin Behenna.
The Wolves lead all ALLIANCE teams with Nine (9) draft picks in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection (London - 4; Windsor, Brantford, Huron Perth, Elgin Middlesex, Kitchener - 3; Sun County, Hamilton, Lambton - 2; Chatham, Cambridge - 1) and were 4th overall in Ontario behind only the Mississauga Rebels (15), Toronto Marlboros and OHL Cup Champions York Simcoe Express (12), the Toronto Jr. Canadiens and the Don Mills Flyers (10).
