The Sarnia Sting have officially signed Nathan Omeri to an Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Standard Player Agreement.
The 2006-born defenceman from Etobicoke was selected in the eighth round of the 2022 OHL Priority Selection.
During his draft year, Omeri tallied 10 goals and 15 assists through 47 games played with the North York Rangers U16 AAA team in addition to a goal and two assists in four games at the 2022 OHL Cup.
Omeri spent the 2022-23 season playing Junior B in the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL).
He recorded nine goals and 25 assists through 50 appearances for the Hamilton Kilty B’s, a performance that earned him a selection on the Golden Horseshoe Conference AllRookie Team and an invite to the GOJHL Future Stars Game.
“Nathan had an excellent season in Junior B with Hamilton,” said Sting general manager Dylan Seca. “We saw his offensive game take big strides and he rounded out his play away from the puck.
“Nathan shows confidence with the puck and is a player who had options outside of the OHL. This signing builds to our already strong ’06 draft class.”
