Lucas Vanroboys Selected By Hamilton In OHL Draft
Vanroboys was selected by Hamilton in the 14th round, 268th overall in the OHL Priority Selection Draft.
A former Chatham-Kent Cyclones star, Vanroboys has spent the last two seasons in Connecticut playing for the South Kent Selects U16 team.
The team is a prep school program, which has numerous NCAA and professional alumni.
Vanroboys, a five-foot-six forward, has the chance to join fellow Thamesville resident and cousin Trent Fox with Hamilton.
Fox was traded to the Belleville Bulls midway through the 2014-2015 OHL season from the Erie Otters. Belleville later announced they’d be relocating to Hamilton for next season.
