The defending state champions Eau Claire Memorial will have to defend their title without the services of senior Charley Graaskamp, who signed to play junior hockey with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League this weekend..ending his high school career.
Graaskamp was having an outstanding season for the Old Abes, with 18 goals and 29 assists in 22 games.
The Ontario Hockey League is arguably the top junior hockey league in North America. "The Great One" Wayne Gretzky was once a Sault Ste. Marie Greyhound.
