High scoring forward Mason Walker of the Sudbury U16 Wolves of the Great North Under 18 Hockey League has become the property of the Sudbury after being picked in the ninth round of the 2024 Ontario Hockey League priority selections draft.

The skilled skater finished second in the entire Great North in scoring despite playing for the league’s only Under 16 team and against older competition. Walker has speed and smarts to go with his skill.

Even more impressive is that Walker was one of the youngest players eligible for the OHL draft with a late November birth date.

In 41 games — regular season and playoffs included — for the U16 Wolves, Walker lit it up to the tune of 37 goals, 34 assists, 71 points.
