Greyhounds ink another prospectTuesday, September 03, 2013 by: Brad Coccimiglio
The Soo Greyhounds announced Tuesday morning that they have signed forward Michael Bunting to a standard player agreement.
Bunting, 18, was selected in the ninth round of the 2013 OHL Priority Selection.
While with the Greyhounds, Bunting will attend Sault College while completing his diploma in Police Foundations.
“Michael was a young man who came into training camp and scored seven goals to earn his way onto the team. Having played his only season at the AAA level last year with the Don Mills Flyers, his development over the last few months working with Wes Clark has been tremendous,” Greyhounds General Manager Kyle Dubas said in a release. “Michael had a terrific summer of development and came into camp playing a relentless style of hockey to earn his way onto the roster.”
Bunting spent last season with the Don Mills Flyers major midget team, where he scored 27 goals.
In 2012, Bunting was named Blessed Cardinal Newman (Toronto) high school athlete of the year where he competed in hockey, badminton and volleyball.
