Mark Tassone is a Soo T-Bird

August 16, 2015

Soo Thunderbirds of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League have signed 1999 birth-year forward Mark Tassone, general manager Jamie Henderson has confirmed.

The 5-foot-9, 185-pound youngster had 39 goals in 67 games with the Soo Greyhounds minor midgets in 2014-2015.

Henderson, as Thunderbirds GM, had multiple good words to say about the 16-year old Tassone.

“Mark is a pretty young player with a lot of upside,” said Henderson. “He’s a great kid off the ice and that was a big factor in signing him.

“It’s always exciting to see a local player with a lot of skill that Mark has so we are excited to have him and he’s really excited to be a Soo Thunderbird,” Henderson added.

Tassone appears to be equally excited to be moving up to the NOJHL ranks with the reigning champion Thunderbirds.

“It feels great to sign with such a great organization,” said Tassone. “I’m really happy to see what the future holds.”
