The Soo Thunderbirds Junior A hockey club is proud to announce they have signed 1998 birth year forward Zach Senecal.
Senecal, who stands 6’0 and 175 lbs had 20 goals and 39 points along with 28 penalty minutes through 33 games last season with the Soo Thunderbirds Midget AAA club. His 20 goals were also second most on the team. During 2014-2015, Zach also played a pair of games with the Junior A T-Birds.
The Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario native was selected in the 7th round (136th overall) by the defending Memorial Cup champion Oshawa Generals in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Zach and his family to the T-Bird program,” said T-Birds general manager Jamie Henderson. “We look forward to watching him develop this season and he’s certainly a player who will draw a lot of attention from NCAA coaches.”
Zach will be reunited with his T-Bird Midget teammates Matt Murray and Brad Thrower, who both signed with the T-Birds this offseason. The trio helped the T-Bird Midgets to a GNML title last season.
