Wolves select 14 new players
The Sudbury Wolves had an eye to the future at the 2013 OHL Priority Selection Draft, as they selected 14 new players April 6.
The Wolves selected seven forwards, five defencemen and two goaltenders.
Kyle Capobianco, who was regarded as one of the most skilled defencemen in the draft, was selected seventh overall by the Wolves. The 6-0, 170-pound rearguard played for the OHL CUP Champion Oakville Rangers.
The Wolves selected the first goaltender in the draft in the second round. Troy Timpano of the Toronto Titans stands 6-0 tall and is regarded as one of the top goaltenders in the province. Timpano was also one of the top performers at the recent OHL Combines testing competition.
In the third round, the Wolves selected centre David Zeppieri. The Mississauga native is 6-1, 180 pounds, and is the captain of the Mississauga Rebels.
The local juniors selected two northern players in the draft, taking Michael Silveri from the North Bay Trappers in the sixth round, and Niibin Nashkawa from the Sudbury Nickel Capital Wolves Major Midgets in the 13th round.
