First Round Pick Grant Webermin Commits to the Spitfires

(Windsor) Windsor Spitfires Vice-President and General Manager Warren Rychel today announced the signing of defenceman Grant Webermin, Windsor’s first round pick, 20th overall in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection to an OHL contract and education package.  Webermin, listed at 6’0” and 170 pounds, scored 12 goals and 29 assists for 41 points with 62 penalty minutes in 52 games played with the Detroit Honeybaked U16’s Minor-Midget team.

Grant Webermin offered the following on commiting to the Spitfires, “Leading up to this year’s OHL Priority Selection, I had several great options to choose from in terms of playing either in Canada or in the U.S.  I feel very privileged to have been considered by all the teams that approached me but at the end of the day, home is where the heart is and that’s what coming to the Windsor Spitfires meant to me.  I’m proud to call Windsor my home and officially becoming a Spitfire today is something that I will not soon forget.”

Warren Rychel said, “We’re proud to bring in a quality player and young man like Grant to the Windsor Spitfires family.  I see Grant contributing to our lineup right away in September and he will be an anchor for us on the back end for years to come.  The Windsor Spitfires organization is thrilled to have a player of Grant’s caliber join the hockey club.”

Webermin will continue his studies at St. Anne’s High School in Lakeshore, ON next season.
