NORTH YORK, ONT. – The North York Rangers are pleased to announce that forward James Fletcher has been named the Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Scholastic Player of the Year for 2017-18.
Fletcher, 18, is set to graduate Mentor College in Port Credit this spring after a great season with the Rangers. Fletcher, whose marks are still to be finalized, is sitting in the 90’s, with his worst mark currently being an 89 in calculus. Fletcher is currently mulling his school options, with the young forward set to choose between Queen’s or Waterloo University for civil or chemical engineering.
On the ice, Fletcher, a faceoff master, finished the season with 19 points in 47 games before adding an additional five points in 11 playoff games this year. Fletcher played on the Mississauga Rebels before becoming an OJHLer under the tutelage of Rangers head coach Geoff Schomogyi, who wanted Fletcher to join him in North York.
Fletcher is the third player to win an award during the post-season, with Colby Muise earning the Goaltender of the Year honour while Kyle Clarke was named the OJHL Humanitarian of the Year.
We’d like to congratulate James on the incredible achievement and we can’t wait to see what’s next in your journey!
