It was announced yesterday that the Barrie Colts 2nd round pick (104th overall) Tom Hedberg has committed to the team. The 17 year old blue liner has signed a standard OHL deal with the team.
General Manager & Head Scout Jason Ford said “He is a tremendous skater with excellent puck-moving ability and is eager to get to North America and get accustomed to the style of play.”
The 5'11, 161 lb blue liner is set to join the Colts this training camp for the 2016-17 season. The Stockholm native was highly regarded headed into the past CHL Import Draft making the top prospect list in the 2016-17 NHL Central Scouting Futures List this past July.
