The Guelph Gryphon’s men’s hockey program announced via Twitter on Wednesday that Mississauga Steelheads defenceman Duncan Penman has made a commitment for the 2021-22 season.
Penman, of Oakville, Ont., will opt to forego a potential overage season to join the U SPORTS circuit next year. The 6-foot, 191Ib. defender posted 21 points (10-11–21) in 61 games with the Steelheads last season. He’s collected 40 points (16-24–40) over 175 career regular season games between Mississauga and Saginaw after he was chosen by the Spirit with the 25th overall pick of the 2017 OHL Priority Selection.
Penman will join a pair of Steelheads teammates in Nick Isaacson and Liam Ham under former OHL head coach Shawn Camp in Guelph. The Gryphons are the latest OUA men’s hockey Queen’s Cup champion, defeating the Ottawa Gee-Gees in a triple-overtime thriller last March behind a game winner from Kingston Frontenacs graduate Ted Nichol.
