Devin Mauro and Sudbury GM Rob Papineau

In signing Mauro to an OHL package, Wolves general manager Rob Papineau noted the work ethic of the young forward.

“We are very pleased to sign Devin. He has continued to work very hard and has earned this opportunity. He has been a great offensive player for many years. Devin isn’t the biggest guy on the ice but he’s a guy who plays bigger than he is, doesn’t quit and competes every shift. He is another great Soo boy who never gave up on his goal,” Papineau told Hockey News North.

“Devin has always been a prolific goal scorer who finds a way to get the puck to the net,” Papineau added. “He’s one of those players you can put anywhere in your lineup and he can make it work. So, he is a great piece to add to our depth.”
