Sunderland native Owen Shier of the Central Ontario Wolves, a defenceman, was selected 159th in the 8th round by the Windsor Spitfires followed shortly thereafter by Ty Roberts from Uxbridge. He went 185th to the Saginaw Spirit as a right winger and played his triple AAA with the Vaughan Kings.
Also a right winger from Uxbridge, Carson Whitson was the third player from our community to be selected and the Mississauga Steelheads took him 228th in round 12 also from the Central Ontario Wolves.
The Uxbridge Bruins congratulate all these fine young men and wish them all the best in their pursuit of playing at the next level.
Our Orr division Champions took a 3-0 series lead over the Port Hope Panthers but couldn’t close out the series as the Panthers came back to tie the series at 3-3 and force a game 7. The Chiefs opened up 3-0 lead and took it into the third when the never say die Tod division champions scored two late goals but could not get the equalizer.
Congrats to both teams on an exciting series and good luck to the Chiefs as our Orr division representatives.
