Center Devin Mauro of the Soo Jr. Greyhounds of the Great North Midget Hockey League has become an Ontario Hockey League draft pick.
The high-scoring Mauro — who finished second on the Great North scoring chart with 30 goals, 32 assists, 62 points in 38 games — was taken by the Sudbury Wolves in the 11th round of today’s OHL priority selections draft.
The 2004 birth-year skater is the younger brother of Justin Mauro, who was a 15th-round pick of the Erie Otters at the 2018 OHL draft.
Jamie Henderson, who coached the younger Mauro with the Jr. Greyhound midgets in 2019-2020, said the prolific pivot has a lot going for him.
“We are really excited for Devin and his family,” Henderson said of Mauro’s selection by the OHL Wolves. “He has a strong skill set and a real desire to continue to improve and make it to the next level.”
