16 Days until the Barrie Colts 2018-19 Home Opener! (Ben Hawerchuk) #OHL

16 days until the Barrie Colts 2018-19 home opener!

Ben Hawerchuk has worn 16 for the past 4 seasons with the Colts and is looking to play in his 5th season as an OA.

HAwerchuk was drafted by the Barrie Colts at the 2014 OHL Priority Selection 109th overall. He played his rookie season with the team during the 2014-15 season where he would put up 4 goals and 5 assists in 59 games.

Last season, he was named an alternate captain of the team and managed to post 12 goals and 15 assists in 52 games which is his 2nd highest year for point production in his career. An area where he improved was staying out of the penalty box. His 63 penalty minutes was his lowest since his rookie campaign.

Over 4 seasons, Hawerchuk has played in 228 games with the ponies. Right now, he sits 2 games behind Stefan Della Rovere for all-time games played with the Colts. When he hits that total, he will have played in the 10th most games as a Colt. If he hits 26 games, he will pass former Colts captain Michael Webster (254 games) for games played and become 2nd in that ranking. The Only Colt who would have played in more games is leader Hunter Tremblay who dressed in 317 games. The most Ben can hit will be 288 games if he plays every game of the season.

Ben has some work to do, seeing as he is 1 of 4 OA players trying to get a spot on the team with Lucas Chiodo, Zachary Magwood and captain Justin Murray.
