Better late than never. Soo Thunderbirds minor midget forward Justin Mauro was picked by the Erie Otters in the 15th round of today’s Ontario Hockey League priority selections draft.
The 5-foot-5, 135-pound Mauro led the Thunderbirds in scoring over the course of the 2017-2018 Great North Midget Hockey League season.
In 22 games, the speedy Mauro netted 9 goals, 7 assists, 16 points on a Soo team that won only two of 24 regular season matches.
