Cullen Mercer Signs OHL Contract with Plymouth
Plymouth Whalers General Manager and Head Coach Mike Vellucci announced the commitment of three players to a Standard Ontario Hockey League Player’s Agreement. One of those players was Huron Perth Lakers Cullen Mercer!
Cullen Mercer was taken in the third round (57th overall) of the 2013 Draft after scoring 37 goals with 36 assists for 73 points last season for the Huron-Perth minor midgets. Cullen also played for Team Alliance in last spring’s Ontario Hockey League’s Gold Cup tournament.
“Cullen’s a good two-way center who plays an intelligent game,” said Vellucci. “With experience, he should develop into a young man who can be used in all situations.”
Cullen and his rookie teammates, Yetman and Bowman will attend high school at the Plymouth-Cantonal Educational Park starting in late August. They’ll report to the Whalers’ training camp during the same time frame in preparation for the upcoming 2013-14 season.
