Maroons’ Josh King To Play In NAHL With Philadelphia
“I’m making the move to the NAHL to continue playing a high level of junior hockey while looking to continue my career after junior while furthering my education at the NCAA level,” King explained about moving to the NAHL with Philadelphia.
Kings, a six-foot-three forward from Essex, was a rookie last season with the GOJHL’s Chatham Maroons.
He scored 10 goals and 24 points in 44 playoff games.
The 1999 born King, played ‘AAA’ the previous two seasons with the Windsor Jr. Spitfires Minor and Major teams.
The Philadelphia Rebels, played last season as the Aston Rebels in the NAHL, a league known for sending players to the NCAA Division I level. Philadelphia finished with a 35-24-1 record last season.
The NAHL three players selected in the 2017 NHL draft, and five players selected in the 2016 NHL draft.
King is one of several Chatham Maroons moving on to Junior A next season, including Kevin Gursoy to the QMJHL, Braeden Henderson to the OHL, and Teddy McGeen and Brendan D’Agostino to the OJHL
