The Acadia Axemen have announced that Peterborough Petes overage defenceman Hudson Wilson has committed to their men’s hockey program for the 2020-21 season.
Wilson, 21, split his five-year OHL career between the Ottawa 67’s and the Peterborough Petes. A third round pick of the 67’s in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection, the 6-foot-3, Toronto-born defender spent over four seasons in Ottawa before heading to Peterborough last October to finish out his overage year. He put forth 59 points (6-53–59) over 266 appearances, including a career high 21 points (1-20–21) in his final season.
“We are very excited to be able to have Hudson at Acadia,” said Axemen head coach Darren Burns in a release. “It is no secret we needed another big stay at home defencemen who can take care of things in his own end, kill penalties and log good minutes. He oozes character and we really believe he has all the attributes to be a player who will keep getting better day by day in our league. His toughness, hard work and leadership is going to be a huge addition for us.”
