"This should...shut up any rumours going around" - Sudbury Wolves forward John McFarland.
The Sudbury Wolves held their rookie camp this weekend, with a non-rookie make the trip north to work with the new players....
2008 first overall pick John McFarland was among the people around the team for the weekend. It is not mandatory for non-rookies to attend, and usually are not around town unless the team's awards banquet is being held at the same time. But the 52 point scorer in 58 games last season chose to take part. "I wouldn't be here if I didn't want to be," McFarland told the Sudbury Star. "There's no other place I would rather be. This should prove it to everyone who has doubts and shut up any rumours going around. Sudbury is where I want to be and where I'm going to be. This is my home, the place I live and the team I play for. When it comes down to it, if there's anything I can do to help this team get better, I'm willing to do it, no questions asked."
Heading into the 2009-10 campaign the Wolves look to have four of their top five scorers back, if John Kurtz returns as an overage. Returnees Daniel Maggio and Peter Hermenegildo join big rookie Justin Sefton, the Wolves top choice in the 2009 OHL Priority Selection. If Sefton's midget game carries over into the OHL, his physical play should quickly make him a fan-favourite among the blue collar fans in Sudubury. It should also open up some space for the Wolves forwards.
