On Friday, the Niagara IceDogs made four new additions to the team as the Ontario Hockey League hosted the first night of the annual Priority Selection.
The 5’11 left-winger from Michigan played the 2019-20 season with the Detroit HoneyBaked U15 AAA, where he scored 13 goals (23 points) in 17 games.
We believe we added a top 10 offensive threat in Juan Copeland.” – General Manager Burke
23rd Overall – Joey Costanzo, Goaltender
The 6’00 goaltender played the 2019-20 season with the Toronto Marlboros. He played his last GTHL game with the Marlboros against the Niagara IceDogs 2020 2nd overall pick, Pano Fimis.
We believe we added our franchise goalie of the future in Joey Costanzo.” – General Manager Burke
In 36 games with the Sun County Alliance U15/16, Waddick scored 34 goals and finished with 56 points.
“I honestly believe Declan Waddick is the steal of the draft, to get a guy we had in our top 15 at pick 39 is nothing short of incredible and he will fit in great here.” – General Manager Burke
45th Overall – Andrew Wycisk, Defenceman
The 5’09 right shot defenceman played the 2019-20 season with the Vaughan Kings U16 AAA.
