Oshawa, Ont. – The Oshawa Generals are happy to announce Matthew Buckley has committed to the organization, ahead of the 2021-2022 OHL season.
Buckley was selected 38th overall at the 2021 OHL Priority Selection on June 4th. Listed as a Centre/Right Wing, he is sure to bring an immediate impact to a forward core that has now had two years of graduates off the roster.
