Five Vimy Hockey Student-Athletes Drafted Into The WHL
Congratulations to the 5 Vimy Hockey student-athletes who were drafted into the WHL at yesterday’s WHL Bantam Draft.
The WHL Bantam Draft is an annual event where WHL Clubs select players who have graduated from the Bantam level of minor hockey or equivalent North American league.
Marcus Kichton was the first Vimy Hockey student-athlete drafted this year. The Spruce Grove Defenceman was drafted in the 2nd round, 26th overall by the Moose Jaw Warriors.
Next to hear his name called was Koletrane Wilson, brother of Donnan/Vimy Hockey and Edmonton Oil King alum Klarc Wilson. The Lethbridge Hurricanes selected the KC Defenceman 84th overall.
14 picks later, the Hurricanes picked Sherwood Park Centre Jadon Joseph 98th overall and added to their Donnan/Vimy Hockey laden list which already includes Vimy Hockey student-athlete Giorgio Estephan (Drafted 4th overall in 2012).
At 144, the Swift Current Broncos selected Defenceman Kyle Dronyk out of the Maple Leaf Athletic Club system. Swift Current is the WHL club of Donnan/Vimy Hockey’s Jake Debrusk and the former team of alumni Reece Scarlett.
And rounding out the Donnan/Vimy Hockey WHL drafts, Sherwood Park Winger Robert Holmes was drafted by the Regina Pats 232nd overall. The Regina Pats took Vimy Hockey student-athlete Sam Steel 2nd overall last year.
Congratulations to these student-athletes on this achievement.
