Saginaw's McNeill named to OHL All-Star Game

Saginaw Spirit defenseman Patrick McNeill has earned a spot on the OHL Western Conference All-Star team. He'll join his teammates in Owen Sound for the Bell OHL All-Star Challenge on Feb. 2 at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.

McNeill is a 17-year-old native of Strathroy, Ontario. He was the Spirit's first selection, first overall, in the 2003 OHL Priority Selection.

Spirit head coach and GM Bob Mancini says McNeill deserves the honor.

"Patrick has earned this recognition through hard work and leadership," Mancini said.
