Levi Tetrault To Make OHL Debut With Guelph Storm
Tetrault will be filling the spot of Storm players away at the World Junior Hockey Championships, specifically defenseman Phil Baltisberger who is playing for Team Switzerland at the tournament.
Tetrault, who has been playing for the Junior B GOJHL’s Chatham Maroons this season is expected to play 4 games over the holiday.
After captaining the Chatham-Kent Cyclones Minor Midget “AAA” team last season, Tetrault was selected by the Guelph Storm in the 4th round, 73rd overall last spring in the OHL Priority selection draft. After signing in the offseason with the Storm, this will be Tetrault’s first OHL action.
This season with the Chatham Maroons, Tetrault has played in the team’s top four defenseman and has 10 assists in 29 games. The lone 16-year-old on the Maroons’ roster, Tetrault was also selected as an alternate for the GOJHL’s Top Prospects Game, which will be held December 27.
The Guelph Storm will play host to the Barrie Colts December 28, before travelling to play the Erie Otters on New Year’s Eve.
Last year, current Storm forward James McEwan of Chatham, who was playing with the Chatham Maroons, received a similar holiday call up to the Storm before making the team full time this fall.
