Sullivan Sparkes, one of six Generals rookies, played for the Waterloo Wolves Midget AAA program for two seasons before committing to the Oshawa Generals for the 2015-2016 season.
Sparkes was the Oshawa Generals third selection in the 5th round, 88th overall in the OHL Priority Selection. He caught the attention of the Oshawa Generals after recording 48 goals and 40 assists for 88 points in 62 regular season games for the Waterloo Wolves Minor Midget team in his 2014-2015 OHL draft year. He then added another 11 goals and 13 assists for 24 points in 18 playoff games.
His stint with the Wolves Minor Midget team not only saw him achieve personal success, but team success as well. His team won the Alliance Championship after defeating a heavily favoured London Jr. Knights team.
Generals Vice-President and General Manager, Roger Hunt, has described Sparkes as, “a dynamic player who produces points.” The 16-year old has played in five games for the Generals this season and is expected to bring a scoring touch to the team as he develops.
