Round One Roberts

Owen Sound | by Fred Wallace  

Highlander Captain Expected To Go Before Attack Pick



The Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection is Saturday morning at 9 am with the Guelph Storm holding the first overall pick.

Yesterday, the Storm essentially confirmed in advance they would be selecting defenceman Ryan Merkley of the Toronto Junior Canadiens.

A handful of players from the Grey Bruce Highlanders are expected to be selected including captain Connor Roberts who is the # 5 rated player by OHL Central Scouting.

Pertaining to Roberts, one OHL GM said, " he's 6 foot-3, 205 pounds and shoots like a pro, what's not to like ? "

The early indication is that Roberts may go 6th to Saginaw or 7th to Oshawa

The Owen Sound Attack are picking 11th in the first round and by that slot it's widely expected that Roberts will not be available.
