Local Player Top OHL Prospect

A Windsorite could be off the board early in today’s OHL draft.

Anthony Salinitri plays for the Windsor Junior Spitfires and is a top-15 overall prospect, according to the Scouting Bureau. The 5′ 10” left-handed centre hopes that his work ethic and ability to read the game set him apart from other draftees. “I love it (hockey) and I watch it consistently, trying to learn new things and learn new plays. I always want to get better, so I’m doing the little things to improve every day.”

Salinitri says he started to realize he could make the OHL during his bantam minor year. That’s when he really started putting extra work in that he felt was necessary to make it to the next level.

There are also five Chatham-Kent Cyclones players, as well as two from the Sun County Panthers, listed in the Scouting Bureau’s top-200.

The Windsor Spitfires hold the 12th overall pick in today’s OHL Priority Selection, which starts at 9am.
