Not cool enough that Mitchell played in the U-17 world championships for Atlantic Canada or that he played Junior hockey this past season when he could have played yet another 2 years in Midget.
Mitchell and I were put together because only a few years ago he had osteomyelitis (a bone marrow infection) in his leg which required the graft of a bone from a tissue donor. We were 2 of the 8 lucky recipients playing for Team Recipient.
Mitchell was eligible for this year's QMJHL draft and he told me that he will be happy to play anywhere where he can step right in and play a regular shift and contribute. I was extremely happy to read today's paper to see that Mitchell Shewfelt was drafted to our hometown Halifax Mooseheads http://thechronicleherald.ca/Sports/1246989.html
The Mooseheads are on yet another rebuilding year and I look forward to seeing Mitchell get lots of icetime on a young team.
