The Greater Sudbury Cubs are convinced that they will have two impactful 16 year-olds in their lineup come this September.
A little over a month after signing Barrie Colts' prospect Nolan Newton, the team added a second forward from northern Ontario, bringing aboard North Bay native Marshall McCharles.
A 10th round draft pick of the Sudbury Wolves this past spring, the 6'1" 180 pound who impressed at the OHL Cup with four points in four games recorded 20 points in 23 games with the North Bay U16 Trappers this past season.
"We are very fortunate to have Marshall join Nolan Newton as our two 16-year-old prospects this season,” stated Cubs' head coach Darryl Moxam. “Marshall had an outstanding Prospect Camp with us and based on his performance, we were very interested in signing him to a card this season."
"This is a great opportunity for Marshall’s development as well as for the team’s success.”
The Cubs will commence their NOJHL season with a back-to-back home games on (Thursday) September 8th (vs Powassan Voodoos) and (Friday) September 9th (vs Hearst Lumberjacks).
All of the Sudbury home encounters are scheduled for the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex, with a 7:05 starts time and plenty of free parking (illuminated lots) and family-friendly ticket pricing.
