Two Waxers selected in OHL Draft

The first step to the next level has begun for Cameron Smith and Sean Mateer.

Both players, who suited up for the Markham Waxers minor midget triple-A squad last season, have been selected by Ontario Hockey League clubs after the OHL Priority Selection Draft, on April 6.

Smith, a 6-foot-1 goaltender, was the first player to go, being taken in the fifth round by the London Knights. The Stouffville native, who had performed well at the OHL Combine a week prior to the draft, was the third goaltender selected by any club. He’ll join a Knights team that finished first in the Western Conference this past season.

Meanwhile, Waxers teammate Mateer was nabbed by the Mississauga Steelheads in the 13th round. The Markham product, a talented centre, put up 11 goals and eight assists in 27 games for the Waxers last season.

Both are expected to attend their respective teams’ development camps later this spring.
