Blue Jackets 1st-rounder Sonny Milano to sign entry-level deal, then play for OHL’s Plymouth Whalers
Per NHL.com, this isn't "Red Wings-related" so it's not going in that blog, but this is a KK Hockey entry that has a very "local" angle for the OHL team that plays all but in my backyard and not too far from the boss.
If you needed another reason to go to a Plymouth Whalers game, the team made a very big trade in acquiring Sudbury's Matthew Campagna on Friday, and today, after holding their annual alumni game, the Whalers landed a first-round draft pick who's played with the U.S. National Developent Team Program:
Columbus Blue Jackets prospect Sonny Milano will play in the Ontario Hockey League this season rather than at Boston College, the NHL team said via Twitter on Saturday.
The 18-year-old forward will play for the Plymouth Whalers.
Milano, the 16th pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, attended United States World Junior evaluation camp in early August. There he said he planned to attend Boston College.
He is eligible to sign an entry-level contract with the Blue Jackets.
