Future Fish Friday: Connor McBroom
It’s time for another Future Fish Friday! Every week we will be featuring one of our Steelheads prospects, so you can get to know what they are like on, and off the ice. This week you’ll be getting to know prospect Connor McBroom.
Position: Right Wing
Hometown: Etobicoke, ON
Previous Team: Minor Midget AAA
Don Mills Flyers
Our third Future Fish, Connor McBroom, was selected by the Steelheads in the 14th round of the 2016 OHL Priority Selection (268th overall).
McBroom finished his 2015-16 season with the Minor Midget AAA Don Mills Flyers where he recorded 22 points (seven goals, 15 assists) in 63 regular season games. As a priority selection prospect, McBroom recently attended the 2016 OHL Development Combine where his team was awarded the Championship title. McBroom takes an aggressive style of play as he describes himself as a physical winger that creates space on the ice from hard fore-checks.
Steelheads’ assistant general manager, Jan Egert, describes McBroom as “a big & powerful forward that likes to initiate contact and revels in the heavy-going. He is mobile for his size; and has an underrated ability to make plays around the net.”
