NORTH YORK, ONT. – The North York Rangers are pleased to announce that a pair of prospects have been drafted to the Ontario Hockey League on Saturday.
William Cuylle was the first to go, with the Toronto Marlboros prospect heading to the Peterbourgh Petes third overall. While he never suited up for the Rangers, had 33 goals and 62 points with the team that finished ranked first in Ontario. Cuylle’s skill was on full display at March’s OHL Cup, leading the tournament in goals and assists. Cuylle is praised for his incredible shot and he skates exceptionally well.
With the 12th overall selection, the Niagara IceDogs chose defenceman Lleyton Moore from the Toronto Marlboros. Moore made his presence known with his two games with the Rangers, grabbing an assist and earning valuable power play time despite being a 15-year-old AP. Moore impressed with his tremendous two-way ability from the blue line, using his speed and tremendous shot to rack up 16 goals and 50 points in 54 games in minor midget this season, before finishing off the year with eight assists in six OHL Cup games.
The Rangers would like to congratulate Cuylle and Moore on getting drafted today and wish the best in their junior hockey development!
