Sarnia Sting General Manager Dylan Seca announced today that the Hockey Club has signed Forward Porter Martone to an Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Standard Player Agreement.
After spending the 2021-22 season with the Toronto Jr. Canadiens U16 AAA team, the 6’03”, 171-pound Peterborough, Ontario native was selected by the Sting 5th overall in the 2022 OHL Priority Selection. A skilled and competitive presence, Martone tallied an impressive 41 goals and 63 assists for 104 points through 53 Greater Toronto Hockey League Games this past season placing him third in league scoring. Martone also excelled for the Jr. Canadiens at the 2022 OHL Cup, held from March 30th through April 4th, as he recorded 7 goals and 8 assists through just 7 tournament games.
After selecting Martone 5th Overall, Seca spoke highly of the Forward:
“Porter is a dynamic forward, with a combination of skill, compete, and goal scoring. We also love his character. He’s an outstanding teammate and someone we know will put the work in to become an impressive player in this league for years to come.”
