New this season, in addition to the Manitoba Young Guns Series (Bantam Players), the Manitoba Junior Hockey League is going to highlight MJHL Midget Prospects in our MJHL-In the System Series. We will take a look at players who are currently listed by an MJHL team and look to be a big part of that team’s future.
The players chosen are all exceptional kids both on-and-off the ice and all have bright futures in the game of hockey.
Follow along and share as we release a new MJHL-In the System Player Profile bi-weekly on the MJHL website and through MJHL social media platforms.
MJHL-In the System Player Profile | Drew Draward
Portage Terriers Prospect
Team: Eastman Selects – Manitoba AAA Midget
Drew Draward is the captain of the Eastman Selects and helped Eastman to a strong season in the very competitive Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League. He currently has 4 points in three playoff games as his team is facing off against the Winnipeg Thrashers in the first round of the playoffs.
Portage Terriers Head Scout/Director of Player Personnel Frank Harding on Draward: “Drew is a prospect we are excited about getting into our line up. He has all the skills to be a top defender. He battles hard and brings a physical presence to his team. He is a leader and is captain of the Eastman Selects provincial midget team. Drew has played as an affiliate with us this season and has shown that he can not only play in our league, he can be a key contributor.”
