Guelph, ON – General Manager and Head Coach George Burnett announced Wednesday that Clark Hiebert has committed to an Ontario Hockey League standard player agreement with the Storm.
Hiebert, a 6-foot-2, 180lb. defenceman from Oakville, was the Storm’s ninth round pick (162nd overall) in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection.
“Clark has shown an impressive amount of determination in earning his opportunity in the OHL,” said Burnett. “He had a terrific year of development with Burlington last season and will bring an effective all-around presence to our blue line.”
Hiebert spent the 2018-19 season with the Burlington Cougars of the Ontario Junior Hockey League, posting 27 points (three goals, 24 assists) in 53 games.
“It’s an amazing feeling to commit to the Storm. I’m excited and thankful for the opportunity to be part of such a first-class organization,” said Hiebert. “It’s been a goal of mine to play at the next level and I wouldn’t be in this position if it weren’t for my family, coaches and teammates helping me along the way.”
In March, Hiebert was selected as a 1st team All-Prospect for the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL). The OJHL All-Prospect Team is comprised of 2001 and 2002 birth-year prospects and is selected by the OJHL general managers, as well as an awards committee comprised of one media member in each OJHL market.
