Colts’ Del Monte to play for Germany at 2022 World Juniors


Barrie Colts forward Ryan Del Monte will be making the trip to Edmonton, suiting up for Germany in the International Showcase that gets underway on Tuesday.

Del Monte was born in Freiburg, Germany when his father Dan, who was also a one-time forward for the Peterborough Petes and Sarnia Sting, played professional hockey there. Del Monte played in Germany during the 2020-21 Covid-19 affected season, recording 14 points (3-11–14) in 32 games for the third division Hannover Indians.

The 19-year-old was slowed by injury during the 2021-22 campaign, recording 21 points (4-17–21) in 35 games for Barrie. He’s a former second round (24th overall) pick by the Colts in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection.

Germany hits the ice on Tuesday, opening their tournament against the United States.
