The Hamilton Bulldogs third overall pick in the 2016 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection, forward Connor Roberts, has agreed to a Standard Player Agreement with the team.

Roberts, 16, played last season with the Grey-Bruce Highlanders and in 28 regular season games with the Minor Midget team accumulated 19 goals and 20 assists.

“We are thrilled to announce Connor has committed to the Hamilton Bulldogs organization,” said team president and general manager Steve Staios. “Connor is a big strong forward who adds a unique element to our team. His skill set on the ice and character off the ice will play an integral part in our organization’s future.”

Hamilton opens its Ontario Hockey League regular season Friday, Sept. 23 when they visit the Mississauga Steelheads. The Bulldogs home opener is slated for the next night against the Kingston Frontenacs at the FirstOntario Centre.
