Port Huron's Archibald chooses OHL route

The Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds have signed defenseman Brandon Archibald.

The Port Huron native was selected in the fourth round of this past May’s OHL Priority Selection out of the Honeybaked AAA program. Archibald tallied eight goals and 22 assists for 30 points during the 2007-2008 regular and playoff seasons.

Archibald was rated as a AA player by the OHL’s Central Scouting heading into the draft.

“We are very pleased to announce that Brandon Archibald has chosen to join our organization," said Soo GM Dave Torrie. "Coming from the Honeybaked system in Detroit, and being a very strong academic student, Brandon obviously had a lot of options to choose from. For him to choose the Soo Greyhounds and the OHL says a lot about his confidence in our program both on and off the ice."

Archibald visited the University of Notre Dame and the University of Wisconsin and also reportedly had a shot at playing for the United States National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor.
