Spirit signs top 2012 draft pick Addison

The Saginaw Spirit announced today that forward Jeremiah Addison has signed an Ontario Hockey League contract after being the team’s first-round pick in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection.

The Brampton, Ont., native was selected 12th overall and was one of five first-round picks taken from the Toronto Marlboros Minor Midget program. Addison recorded 28 goals among his 46 points this past season for the OHL Cup finalists.

Addison’s teammates with the Marlboros included three of the top five players selected in the draft in Connor McDavid (first to Erie), Roland McKeown (second to Kingston) and Joshua Ho Sang (fifth to Windsor).

Addison was in attendance at this past weekend’s rookie camp where he recorded two goals in three scrimmages and was impressive with his combination of speed and high-end goal-scoring capabilities.
