Niagara-on-the-Lake native Kaleb Dietsch got to meet some of the Ottawa 67’s coaching staff and other draft picks at the club’s 2023 development camp last weekend.
The defenceman from the Souther Tier Admirals U16 AAA team was chosen 46th overall by Ottawa in the Ontario Hockey League’s junior draft two weeks ago.
A club spokesperson said that after a welcome dinner on Friday night, the lanky 6-foot-2 defender participated in fitness testing, on-ice development sessions and some intrasquad games.
Dietsch, 16, started his hockey career with the NOTL Minor Hockey Association.
He plans to spend the summer getting stronger and developing his skills in hopes of competing for a roster spot with the 67’s when training camp is held late this summer.
