OHL’s Storm Counting On McEwan
The Guelph Storm will be looking for even bigger things from Chatham’s James McEwan as they prepare for another OHL season.
McEwan led the Storm last year in goals and points, something which didn’t surprise general manager Mike Kelly, who believes the forward still has more potential to be tapped.
“Right from the get-go when James was at the OHL Combine prior to the OHL Draft, his test results put him in the top five percent of eligible players. He’s one of those classic late bloomers and I think we’re just scratching the surface with what James McEwan can do,” said Kelly of McEwan, in an OHL release.
McEwan scored 25-goals and 52 points last season in 68 games, all career highs for the former Chatham Maroons and Chatham-Kent Cyclones standout, who is entering his third OHL season.
Also featured on the Storm’s lineup is defenseman Levi Tetrault of Chatham, another Maroons and Cyclones alumni.
McEwan attended development camp for the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins this summer, and will play for the team at the annual NHL Rookie Tournament in London, Ontario this month.
