Mississauga, ON – The Mississauga
Steelheads are proud to announce the signing of their 1st round pick
from the 2013 OHL Priority Selection, Sean Day. “We are thrilled to
welcome Sean Day to the Mississauga Steelheads organization. Sean’s
tremendous skill set is highlighted by his elite skating ability. We
look forward to working with Sean as he adjusts to the league and
becomes a key member of our hockey club” said Steelheads General
Manager, James Boyd.
Day, a member of Detroit Compuware last year was selected 4th
overall by the Steelheads at the 2013 OHL Priority Selection and in
April was granted Exceptional Status by Hockey Canada, allowing him to
enter the OHL Priority Selection as an 15 year old, only the 4th
player in league history to receive the Exceptional Status distinction.
Despite not playing minor hockey in Canada, Day is a Canadian citizen,
with both of his parents having strong ties to Ontario and the GTA
region and will have some strong local support from family and friends
when he takes the ice at the Hershey Centre this season.
Steelheads owner Elliott Kerr is looking forward to Day’s OHL debut
this coming season. “We are thrilled to have a player the quality of
Sean Day join our Steelheads family. We enthusiastically look forward to
working with Sean and his family as we assist in his development as a
person, a student and a hockey player.”
Being granted exceptional status and joining the Steelheads has been
an exciting process for Sean. “I am very honoured and proud to be a part
of the Steelheads team. It’s an exciting step in my hockey career, and
I’m looking forward to the coming season.”
The Steelheads would like to welcome Sean and the Day family to the Mississauga Steelheads organization.
