He’s on deck to start the Memorial eCup presented by Kia on Saturday afternoon at 2:10pm, and Justin O’Donnell plans to go all the way. Representing the Sarnia Sting, O’Donnell will take on Winnipeg ICE forward Mikey Milne to launch the proceedings.
A 17-year-old from Oakville, Ont., O’Donnell battled his way past Sting teammates Nolan Burke, Ethan Langevin and Brayden Guy to earn the chance to represent Sting Nation in the 64-team bracket. The Sting will be airing their eCup Qualifiers on their Twitch account leading up to the start of the tourney.
Friends call him O.D. O’Donnell was Sarnia’s second round (35th overall) pick in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection and registered a goal and four assists in his rookie season. The 6-foot, 180Ib. right winger scored his first career OHL goal on February 8th in Windsor.
