Getting to know Petes’ prospect Konnor Smith

In a typical season, Petes fans would have already become familiar with each first-year player’s personality, skills and style of play. Despite being unable to catch the highly-touted prospects’ on-ice skills at the Memorial Centre yet this year, fans can have the opportunity to get to know the newest members of the maroon and white by checking out the video series, Future Petes Friday.

This week, we sit down with defensive prospect Konnor Smith who shines a light on his path in hockey,  what he’s been up to since the pandemic and what he’s doing to be ready for when the OHL season resumes.

A quick recap on Smith

Standing at 6’6″, 205 lbs, the shutdown defenceman was selected by the Petes in the 2020 OHL Priority Selection in the 9th round, 175th overall from his hometown Windsor Jr. Spitfires. In 33 games, he tallied six points (1 goal, 5 assists).
