Game of Wednesday, February 14, 2018 – Kingston at Ottawa
The Ontario Hockey League today announced the results of a review of an incident which took place in a game played in Ottawa on the 14th of February, 2018, involving the 67’s and the visiting Kingston Frontenacs Hockey Club.
The incident reviewed was a match penalty for checking to the head assessed to player Shaw Boomhower of the Ottawa 67’s Hockey Club.
Based on a review of the incident, it is the position of the League that player Shaw Boomhower shall be suspended for twelve (12) games, dating from but not including the game of Wednesday, February 14, 2018.
During the 2015-2016 season, Mississauga Steelheads center Shaw Boomhower played for the Wellington Dukes of the Ontario Junior Hockey League where he scored 9 goals to go along with 14 assists in 51 games in the Ontario Junior A circuit.
The Steelheads were impressed enough to invite Boomhower to camp as a free agent in the fall of 2016 and he did his part, making the Steelheads roster. He would finish the regular season with 7 goals and 10 assists in 60 games, and to date, has 1 assist in 13 playoff games.
Boomhower was also recognized by the National Hockey League’s Central Scouting. The scouting group ranked Boomhower at 123 among North American Skaters on their mid-term ranking and rising 11 spots to 112 on the final list.
Boomhower brings that sheer determination, work ethic and will to the rest of his game as he does in the hitting department. It is what Steelheads General Manager James Boyd saw when he signed Boomhower.
“Shaw Boomhower is a player who impressed us with his determination and effort level. He is a player who has really improved since his draft year.”
With the Steelheads’ depth, it’s hard to judge Boomhower’s offensive upside. That said, we project him as a player who can be solid defensively, provide energy, and chip in with a little offense as a bottom 6 forward.
