I fear Sarnia Sting fans are in for another long winter next year.
That’s because in an era in which big hockey players rule the roost, the Sting selected far too many little guys when the Ontario Hockey League held its annual Priority Selection draft last month.
Statistics tell the story. Of the 19 other teams in the OHL, fully 11 picked more prospects who stand at least six feet tall than did Sarnia. Three other clubs picked just as many six footers as the Sting. Only five chose fewer.
