“Very rarely do you see this combination of skill and toughness,” said O’Dette. “We share a common Canadian heritage since we both hail from Ontario. I’ve scouted some video of him online skating with my hometown team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and I think he could provide some elusive speed up front for us. Plus, he’s a right-handed shot which we’ve been looking to add. I think if we paired him on a line with (Robby) Dee and (Peter) Boyd we’d be tough to beat.”
Bieber, 18, was born in London, Ontario, but was raised in Stratford,Ontario where he grew to love the game of hockey. He has skated with the NHL’s Maple Leafs (pictured), but has never appeared in a professional game. According to scouts, he possesses soft hands, a good skating stride, and a devastating wrist shot capable of beating NHL caliber goaltenders. He appears to be strong in shootouts as well.
The 5’7″, slender built superstar should provide a rookie presence for the second-year laden Condors squad. Plus, his sick flow will fit right in with a Condors team known for their style. The Condors have reserved his much publicized favorite number 6 to be worn in Condorstown.
