The Sarnia Sting have signed defenceman Owen MacDonald to an Ontario Hockey League standard player agreement.
The 17-year-old Mooretown native grew up in the Lambton Jr. Sting AAA program. He has played the majority of the 2021-22 season with the GOJHL's Sarnia Legionnaires, tallying 15 points in 27 games.
After being selected 46th overall in the 2021 OHL U18 Priority Selection, MacDonald has played seven games with the Sting and has recorded an assist.
Sting GM Dylan Seca comments on the recent signing.
"We’re thrilled to welcome Owen and the MacDonald family today," said Seca. "He is a player who puts in the work both on and off the ice. We have seen tremendous development within the last year and look forward to continuing to work with him."
The Sting's next game is Friday night at home to the Sault St. Marie Greyhounds on CHOK.
