This looms as a potential steal of a third round draft pick. That is, Sault Ste. Marie product Nik Rossetto is poised to sign with the Brantford Bulldogs of the Ontario Hockey League, Hockey News North has learned.

An electrifying forward, Rossetto became a gamble of a pick by Brantford in the third round of the 2024 OHL priority selections draft. With so much interest from major Division 1, National Collegiate Athletic Association schools and indications that he might be headed that way, Rossetto dropped from being a projected first rounder to the third round, where Brantford took a chance on him.

After playing all of his minor hockey at home, Rossetto left Sault Ste. Marie for Pittsburgh last fall to play in the Jr. Penguins Under 16 AAA elite program.  A small but skilled, speedy and smart forward, Rossetto sparked all Jr. Penguins in scoring during the 2023-2024 regular season with 47 goals, 27 assists, 74 points in 53 games.
