Sudbury, ON – The Sudbury Wolves are pleased to announce that Marshall Frappier, the team’s sixth round draft pick from the 2017 OHL Priority Selection has signed a Standard Player Agreement with the hockey club. Frappier, born and raised in Nepean Ontario, was the first goalie selected by the Wolves in the 2017 Draft.
“Marshall had a great season last year playing junior with the Nepean Raiders in the CCHL where he was named the team’s rookie of the Year. He was also the only non CHL goalie to represent Canada at the World Under 17 tournament in Sault Ste. Marie last fall. He has great character and we are very happy he has chosen the OHL and the Sudbury Wolves to continue his development,” said Rob Papineau, Vice President of Hockey Operations and General Manager. “We have expectations that all players will come to camp ready to compete for their positions and we like what Marshall brings to our organization.”
“I am looking forward to coming to camp in September and earning a spot on the team,” said Frappier from his home in Nepean. “My focus this summer is to continue to improve my skills and be in the best physical and mental condition possible. It’s really exciting to be part of the Sudbury Wolves and I can’t wait to get to Sudbury.”
During his 2016-17 campaign, Frappier was selected for the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence Goaltending Camp for Under 17 prospects, recognition of the top goalies in the country. He also participated in the Under 17 World Hockey Challenge for team Canada White posting a 2.83 GAA and a .900 SVS%. Playing on the Nepean Raiders last season, Frappier was named to the CCHL All-Rookie team. The Wolves scouting staff identified Frappier as a goaltender that has good quickness and gets square to the puck leaving little for shooters to aim at.
Fans will have their chance to see Marshall in action as he will participate in the Sudbury Wolves training camp starting September 1st, 2017.
