Soo Greyhounds General Manager Kyle Raftis is pleased to announce today the commitment from 2014 draft pick MAC HOLLOWELL.
The Niagara Falls, ON product was the Greyhounds 12th Round Selection in this past April’s OHL Priority Selection.
“We are really excited to have Mac join our Program. He has made huge strides from his minor midget year to now. Throughout training camp Mac has really shown through his skating and hockey IQ that he will be an important part of our team’s future” stated Raftis.
