The Fredericton Red Wings are pleased to announce we made a selection with our 2020 Territorial Draft Pick.
That pick was to select Andrew Gweon (2004) from the Fredericton Midget ‘AAA’ Caps. Andrew on the scoresheet last season through 37 games recorded 16 goals and 22 assists. He was also selected last week in the 4th round (73rd overall) by the Quebec Ramparts.
“Andrew is a power forward who competes very hard. He has a tremendous attitude and there is a lot of upside in his game,” says head coach Brian Casey.
This year, three teams made the maximum of two selections.
Five teams made one selection and will receive a compensation pick following the third round of the Entry Draft, including Fredericton.
Selecting a players’ rights allows teams the exclusive Junior ‘A’ rights to players from their own geographic region.
The four teams that did not make a territorial selection will receive compensation picks following rounds two and three of the Entry Draft that will take place June 13th beginning at 10 a.m., with live coverage of the first two rounds in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland on Eastlink Community TV, channels 10 and 610, and also available in New Brunswick on Rogers TV, channel 10. Full draft results will be available at themhl.ca and @THEMHL on Twitter.
