SIXTY NOVA SCOTIANS DRAFTED AT 2018 MHL DRAFT IN BERWICK
Jun. 11, 2018

BERWICK — More than 50 Nova Scotians were selected by Maritime Jr. A clubs over the weekend.
 
The Maritime Hockey League (MHL) held its annual draft on Saturday at the Kings Mutual Century Centre in Berwick. In all, 60 Nova Scotians heard their names called at this year’s draft.
 
More than half of the players picked in the first round played last season in the Nova Scotia Major Midget Hockey League. Jack Morris, a 16-year old defenceman with the Cape Breton West Islanders, was the first Nova Scotian selected. The St. Stephen Aces drafted the Antigonish native second overall. Morris averaged a point-per-game this season with the Islanders, scoring nine times and adding 27 assists in 36 games.
 

Morris' Cape Breton West teammate Sean Stewart was selected fourth overall by the Pictou County Weeks Crushers. Cole Harbour's Liam Kidney (Valley Wildcats), the Valley Wildcats' Damian Hartt (Truro Bearcats), Halifax McDonald's forward Aaron Brown (Edmunston Blizzard), Steele Subaru Major Midgets forward Riley Spears, and Sam Gillis of the Cape Breton Unionized Tradesmen were also chosen in Round 1.

Two players who spent time in the Nova Scotia Minor Midget AAA Hockey League last season were also drafted. Dartmouth Voyageurs' captain Joshua Crooks was a fifth round pick of the Campbellton Tigers while Jacob Christie, who began the season with the NSMMAAAHL's Admirals before joining the NSMMHL's Steele Subaru Major Midgets later in the year, was taken by St. Stephen in Round 2 of the Territorial Draft.

Below is a complete list of the Nova Scotians selected at Saturday's draft.
