Garden River First Nation product Owen Headrick became a North American Hockey League draft pick today.
Soo Eagles selected the 6-foot, 190 pound defenceman in the third round of the 2014 NAHL draft.
A 1997 birth-year, Headrick was rookie-of-the-year in the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League during the 2013-2014 season while skating for the Soo Thunderbirds.
Headrick had 8 goals, 23 assists, 31 points in 56 regular-season games with the Thunderbirds. He then added 2 goals, 11 assists, 13 points in 15 playoff outings.
A year ago, Headrick was taken by the Erie Otters in the 14th round of the 2013 Ontario Hockey League draft.
He has since been offered a full-ride scholarship by the Lake Superior State University Lakers of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
