Metro signs two more '09 draft picks

Two more 2009 draft picks are in the fold for the Metro Jets.

This past Tuesday, forward Anthony Marrocco and defenseman Jonathan Wickersham, teammates last season on the Summit Plastics Midget AA team out of Fraser, signed on the dotted line.

Both should pay immediate dividends in Waterford.

"Rocco is a grinding-type forward," said Metro assistant coach Ryan Skop. "Not the quickest guy in the world, but he'll put a body on you if he gets the chance. He's a guy that isn't afraid to go to the net and can be pretty crafty when he gets there.

"Wick is a guy who can help us at both ends of the ice. He's got good size and is a very smart hockey player. He's another guy who's got good leadership qualities and I look for him to be a big contributor in the dressing room as well."

The Jets now have nine of their 2009 draft picks signed for the upcoming 2009-2010 season, have also signed five free agents and brought back tough defenseman Steve Lockwood from last year's team.
