Owen Headrick to have shoulder surgery
September 29, 2014
Bluechip blueliner Owen Headrick is slated to have shoulder surgery on Wednesday of this week, the youngster’s mother has confirmed to HockeyNewsNorth.com.
“Owen will be having surgery to fix a recurring shoulder problem,” Headrick’s mother, Anne, told me. “We don’t have a time length on how long he will be out. But we know Owen will work on getting back on the ice as soon as possible.”
A highly-regarded, 1997 birth-year defenceman from Garden River First Nation, Headrick is in his second season with the Soo Thunderbirds of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League. He was named NOJHL rookie-of-the-year in 2013-2014.
Headrick recently committed to the Lake Superior State University Lakers of the Division 1, Western Collegiate Hockey Association on a full-ride scholarship. The plan is for Headrick to begin his collegiate career at LSSU effective the 2015-2016 campaign.
