The Great North Midget League’s Soo Thunderbirds are preparing for the upcoming season. (Video)


The Great North Midget League’s Soo Thunderbirds have wrapped up their evaluation camp this past weekend, and the club has so far signed 18 players for the upcoming season.

On Monday, I invited Thunderbirds head coach Jamie Henderson into our studio to talk about how the camp went and his thoughts on last season.

The 2018-2019 season will be the Thunderbirds second year in the Great North Midget League.

This past April, Thunderbirds forward Justin Mauro became the first player in the club’s history to be drafted by an OHL team after being taken in the 15th round by the Erie Otters.

The Thunderbirds have named defenceman Jack Matier team captain for the upcoming season along with naming three new members as alternate captains.
