OHL Draft: Blueliner Trent Ledrew Brings The Full Package
When the puck leaves the Chatham-Kent Cyclones zone, there’s a good chance it is on, or came from, Trent Ledrew’s stick.
The defender is the type of building block many teams are looking to add, and is considered a solid prospect for the upcoming OHL Draft.
Should the Lakeshore product hear his name called in the OHL Priority Selection Draft, it would be. a dream come true.
“Since I started playing hockey I’ve wanted to play in the OHL. It would truly be an honour to compete with the best of the best and to fulfil a life long dream of mine,” the six-foot, right shot blueliner said.
Ledrew has been a backbone for the Cyclones, earning a spot at the U15 Alliance All-Star game, and was 5th in Alliance scoring among defenders collecting 19 points in 32 regular season games.
The right shot defender had hoped to lead his team from the defensive zone out this season in pursuit of the OHL Cup, but COVID-19 put a hold on those plans.
“It turned out to be disappointing because we had such a talented team which had a good chance to make the OHL Cup,” Ledrew said of the season.
“It would have been a fantastic experience to share with my teammates. We had a very strong team with amazing chemistry. The entire team was filled with highly skilled players who will all be able to play at the next level. I am hoping that many of us are selected in the upcoming OHL priority selection draft and maybe even call them teammates again in the future.”
Ledrew himself has hopes to soon showcase his skills at the next level if and when an OHL team selects him in the upcoming draft.
“If I am selected, my plan is to show up to camp in great shape and be both physically and mentally prepared to compete. I believe I am a balanced two-way defenceman who will also bring speed and leadership to the team.”
Any team in the OHL would be lucky to add the attributes displayed by Trent Ledrew both on and off the ice.
The OHL Draft will take place virtually on June 4-5.
