Video: Orientation weekend offers first glimpse of Sudbury Wolves top draft pick Quinton Byfield

At 15 years old Byfield stands 6'4, averaged 3 pts/game and is a top prospect for the 2020 NHL draft

The excitement at Sudbury Arena over the weekend was "electrical," according to Sudbury Wolves owner Dario Zulich.

Everywhere in Ontario, hockey fans are buzzing about a handful of highly exceptional players born in 2002. 

Among them is Sudbury Wolves draft pick, Quinton Byfield. 

Some say he’s the next Connor McDavid - at 15 years old, 6’4, and averaging three points per game, he was round one, number one in the 2018 OHL draft and a top prospect for the 2020 NHL draft.

Clarifying that this was not a 'rookie camp', Wolves head coach Cory Stillman said free agents and 2018 as well as 2017 drafts were at Sudbury Arena April 14 and 15 for orientation only. Stillman said this was an opportunity for new recruits and those hoping to be recruited to be seen and to become acquainted with the team.

The Wolves extended an invite to the public to come see the new recruits and come out, they did. If you weren't able to make it out for free popcorn and a look, has you covered.
