THREE BULLDOGS PROSPECTS INVITED TO U-17 DEVELOPMENT CAMP

Hamilton’s first-round pick in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection, Ryan Winterton, is one of three Bulldogs prospects taking part at Hockey Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-17 Development Camp.

The Bulldogs second-round pick, Lawson Sherk and sixth-round pick, goaltender Matteo Drobac, have also received invites.

Ryan Winterton was drafted 8th overall by the Bulldogs in the OHL Priority Selection, after an impressive season with the Whitby Wildcats. Winterton, a 6-ft-156 lbs centerman scored 38 goals and added 34 assists for 72 points in 36 games. He signed with the Bulldogs after Development Camp and is expected to crack the lineup for the 2019-2020 season.

The Bulldogs selected Lawson Sherk with their second-round pick (40th overall) and he was signed shortly after Winterton, on May 1st. Sherk, a 6-ft-175 lb centerman, played last season for the Halton Hills Hurricanes Minor Midgets where he scored 16 goals and added 35 assists for 51 points in 32 games.

Hamilton used their first of two picks in the 6th round of the Priority Selection to take Matteo Drobac (110th overall) from the Halton Hills Hurricanes Minor Midgets. Drobac, a 6’0, 179lb goaltender had a 1.38 GAA and a .944 SV% at the 2019 OHL Cup.

During the week-long camp, the players – 12 goaltenders, 36 defencemen and 64 forwards – will be split into six teams for on- and off-ice training, fitness testing, intrasquad games and classroom studies.

Following camp, players will be monitored through the early weeks of the 2019-20 season before 66 are named to one of three Canadian teams – Team Canada Black, Team Canada Red and Team Canada White – competing at the 2019 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, scheduled for Nov. 2-9 in Medicine Hat, Alta., and Swift Current, Sask.
