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).



CONGRATULATIONS to the following players and their families on this tremendous accomplishment:

Alex Gritz 3rd Round (50th Overall) - Soo Greyhounds
Mitchell Hoelscher 3rd Round (56th Overall) - Ottawa 67's
Nathan Torchia 4th Round (67th Overall) - Oshawa Generals
Chris Playfair 4th Round (75th Overall) - Windsor Spitfires
Mason Hardy 7th Round (128th Overall) Mississauga Steelheads

Spencer Kersten 8th Round (151st Overall) Owen Sound Attack

WMHA would also like to congratulate Tyler Spott, son of former Kitchener Ranger head coach and WMHA coach mentor, Steve Spott, who played 6 seasons with the Wolves before joining the Toronto Marlboros, on being drafted by the Hamilton Bulldogs.
