LAKEHEAD ADDS MICHAEL MACDONALD TO ROSTER
Tuesday, May 22, 2012
The Lakehead University Thunderwolves hockey team is happy to announce that Michael MacDonald of Thunder Bay, Ontario has committed to the program and will begin attending school and playing hockey next fall.
MacDonald began his three-year OHL career with the London Knights, where he played for one and a half seasons before being traded to the Sudbury Wolves for the remainder of his time in the OHL. In his final season with Sudbury, the 5’11”, 175-pounder was elected as the team Captain. His best year statistically came in London in 2009-10 when he tallied 41 points.
MacDonald is happy to be able to attend school and play hockey in Thunder Bay. “I chose Lakehead because in my eyes, the Thunderwolves hockey program is the best in the CIS,” he stated. “On top of that, I get to play in my hometown in front of family and friends.”
Wolves Head Coach Joel Scherban is hoping for big things out of MacDonald. “Michael is a complete player who is on the verge of having a breakout offensive season,” Scherban stated. “His tremendous skating ability will be his best attribute in CIS hockey.”
