Peterborough Petes General Manager, Michael Oke, announced at a press conference hosted at Hybrid Sports on Thursday, July 28 that the team has signed 2022 fourth round, 69th overall OHL Priority Selection pick, Braydon McCallum, to a standard player agreement.
McCallum suited up for the Brantford 99ers U16 AAA during the 2021-22 season, where he recorded 22 goals and 26 assists for 48 points in 27 games. The 5’9”, 157 lbs Centre also picked up three assists in 4 games at the OHL Cup.
Braydon is a Centre from Delhi, ON. His brother, Landon, currently plays in the OHL for the Sudbury Wolves. Scouts suggest that the brothers have a very similar style of play: highly skilled forwards that compete hard. Notable Petes alumni from Delhi include Geordie Kinnear (1991-’93) and Jassen Cullimore (1988-’92).
When asked about joining the Petes, McCallum said: “I am super excited to be drafted by Peterborough, it is a historical team and I can’t wait to start. I can’t wait to live here, explore the city and experience it with my teammates.”
When asked about Braydon, Peterborough Petes GM, Mike Oke said: “Over the course of last season leading up to the draft, his skills and level of compete, game in and game out, were noticeable.”
