Future Fish Friday: Isaac Walker
Future Fish Friday is back again! Today you’ll get to know Steelheads’ prospect Isaac Walker, who was taken in the ninth round (168th overall).
Position: Left DefenceHometown: London, ON
Previous Team: Minor Midget AAA London Knights
Isaac Walker comes to the Steelheads from the Minor Midget AAA London Knights, where he played his 2015-16 season. With the Knights, Isaac scored 10 points (1 goal, 9 assists) in 33 games played. Isaac describes his style of play as a “shut down defenseman” as he helped his team lead the standings in the Alliance Hockey Minor Midget Pavilion League’s (AHMMPL) regular season.
Steelheads assistant general manager, Jan Egert, adds “Isaac is versatile player that can be counted upon in any situation of the game, and has the ability to impact the game in all three zones. He has a good stick & plays physical in his own end; is patient with the puck and doesn’t force plays when in possession.”
