Pain Court’s Levi Tetrault, has moved one step closer to his goal of playing in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), as the 16-year-old defenseman has signed with the Guelph Storm.

Tetrault will spend the majority of his season with the Chatham Junior B Maroons, however signing will give him the opportunity to suit up for the Storm this season.

For Tetrault, Guelph’s 4th round pick in this springs OHL Draft, his first chance to don a Guelph jersey will come in Friday’s preseason game against the Plymouth Whalers, before he returns to Chatham Sunday for his regular season debut with the Maroons.

“It’s exciting and a real honour to have signed with the Guelph Storm,” says Tetrault. “It’s a dream come true to sign a contract with the best team in the OHL. The Guelph Storm really know how to develop hockey players to their full potential. I am very blessed to be playing for two great hockey teams,” added Tetrault about the opportunity to play for the Chatham Maroons this season, and Guelph.

The Storm who also signed forward Luke Burghardt, their 6th round pick, this week, feel they’ve added two important pieces to the future of their organization.

“Luke and Levi both had very strong training camps and figure prominently in our future,” said Mike Kelly, the Storms general manager in a team news release.

“The opportunity to have them experience OHL-level hockey as 16-year olds will enhance their development and help them be ready for very significant roles with us next season.”

In other words, Tetrault can expect a call up to the Storm throughout the season if they’re in need, just as former Maroons forward James McEwan of Chatham did last year, before making the Storm full time this season.

Tetrault and the Chatham Maroons will host the Leamington Flyers on Sunday.
