Busby Back

Soo Thunderbirds

buxbyAfter receiving commitments five days ago from four players returning as OAs, the Soo Thunderbirds have announced that eighteen year old defenseman Matt Busby will be returning to the team for 2015-2016.

The Shanty Bay, Ontario native, who will enter his third NOJHL season and second with the T-Birds, came over as a free agent in September of 2014 from the Espanola Rivermen. The 2013 fifteenth round pick of the Ontario Hockey League’s Windsor Spitfires scored three times and set up eighteen others through fifty two games along with collecting thirty five penalty minutes before recording nine points through nine postseason contests. He also had one goal in four contests at the Dudley Hewitt Cup Tournament before registering one assist through four games at the RBC Cup.
