Alumni Nighthawks are OHL Draft Picks
Submitted By Michelle Brown on Sunday, April 7, 2019
Two of our graduated Nighthawks have gotten notice by the OHL and were both drafted this past weekend.  The OHL is the #1 Development League in the world for the NHL, and recent stars who have gone this route include; Connor McDavid, John Tavares and Drew Doughty.

Wade Bolton and Erik MacNeil, two local boys who played for the Nighthawks in years past have both been selected by OHL teams.

Wade, a grade 10, St. Mary's High School student has been playing AAA hockey for Central Ontario Wolves.  He was one of 14 players selected by the Mississauga Steelheads in the OHL Priority Draft.

Erik MacNeil, also a grade 10, St. Mary's student was selected by the North Bay Battalion.  He has spent the past few years playing AAA hockey with the Quinte Red Devils.

This is such an exciting time for both of these boys, their families, their AAA clubs and their old "alma mater" the Northumberland Nighthawks.

Having two local players, receive such recognition, is a testament to hockey in Northumberland and surrounding areas. The OMHA had 74 players selected in the Draft!!!

Every year, some of our Nighthawks "graduate" and advance to one of our AAA centres.  As hard it as it can for our teams to lose such talent, it is an amazing source of pride as we watch these kids move on, continue to develop and get their well earned call ups.

We are all very proud of you Wade and Erik, your hard work, determination, and obvious amazing talent has been noticed!  We wish you all the best at your teams main selection training camp
