Amadio named to OHL second all star team


The Ontario Hockey League has announced its first, second and third all-star teams for 2015-2016, and one local product cracked one of the lists.

Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario native Mike Amadio was selected to the Ontario Hockey League’s second all-star team.

Amadio, who captained the North Bay Battalion this past season, led his club in scoring with 50 goals, 48 assists and 98 points through 68 games.

Not only did the 20 year old forward have a career high year for goals, assists and points, but throughout his time in North Bay, he also became the franchise’s all time leader in points (207), goals (86), assists (121), games played (200), points per season (98), goals per season (50) and assists per season (48).

The Ontario Hockey League all-star teams were picked by general managers around the league.

Amadio, who was also this year’s recipient of the William Hanley Trophy as the Ontario Hockey League’s most sportsmanlike player, became the first Sault native to win that award since Kevin Conway did back in 1983-1984.

Back in March, Amadio also signed a three-year entry-level contact with the Los Angeles Kings, the team who had selected him in the 3rd round (90th overall) during 2014.

Amadio becomes the first Sault native to be named an Ontario Hockey League all-star since former Hounds captain and defenceman Colin Miller (2012-2013).
