Archibald commits to Greyhounds

The Soo Greyhounds Hockey Club today announced the signing of defenceman and 2008 draft pick Brandon Archibald.

The Port Huron, Michigan native was selected in the fourth Round of this past May’s OHL Priority Selection out of the Detroit Honeybaked Midget program. There, Archibald tallied eight goals, 22 assists for 30 points during the 2007/2008 regular and playoff seasons.

Archibald was rated as a AA player by the OHL’s Central Scouting heading into the draft.

“We are very pleased to announce that Brandon Archibald has chosen to join our organization," said Greyhounds' GM Dave Torrie. "Coming from the Honeybaked system in Detroit, and being a very strong academic student, Brandon obviously had a lot of options to choose from. For him to choose the Soo Greyhounds and the OHL says a lot about his confidence in our program both on and off the ice.”

Archibald is enrolled in Bawating Collegiate and Vocational School where he will continue his high school education while in Sault Ste. Marie.
