Goaltender Nathan Torchia has officially committed to the Oshawa Generals.
Torhcia was selected by the Generals during the fifth round of the 2016 OHL Priority Selection. Last season, he played with the Waterloo Wolves Minor Midget AAA, collecting 19 wins in 35 games.
He also posted a very strong .916 save percentage and 2.97 goals against average.
“This is another exciting day for the Generals organization. You can never have too much depth at this position and we are confident that we have added another great goaltender to the organization,” states Roger Hunt, vice president and general manager of the Oshawa Generals in a press release.
Nathan’s father, Mike Torchia, is no stranger to success in the OHL. Mike spent four seasons with the Kitchener Rangers where he was named the top goalie at the 1990 Memorial Cup, but fell short in the finals against the Oshawa Generals. The following season Mike would win OHL Goaltender of the Year and was later drafted to the Minnesota North Stars.
