Hudson Wilson commits to joining the Axemen
Acadia adds 6th new recruit for upcoming season
The Acadia Axemen hockey program is proud to announce the commitment of Toronto, Ontario’s Hudson Wilson. Hudson, a 6’3” 195lbs defenseman, has spent the past five years playing junior hockey in the OHL primarily with the Ottawa 67’s before finishing up with the Peterborough Petes.
Over 5 years in the OHL, Hudson played in 266 regular season games, scoring 6 goals and adding 53 assists. He was a plus 61 rating, along with adding 168 penalty minutes. He added 8 points in 28 playoff games, with a +7 rating.
Axemen head coach Darren Burns sees the addition of Wilson as a big piece of the roster puzzle for the upcoming season saying, “We are very excited to be able to have Hudson at Acadia. It is no secret we needed another big stay at home defencemen who can take care of things in his own end, kill penalties and log good minutes. He oozes character and we really believe he has all the attributes to be a player who will keep getting better day by day in our league. His toughness, hard work and leadership is going to be a huge addition for us.”
With the addition of Wilson, the Axemen have now added 6 new recruits for the upcoming season. The new Axemen include Tyler Hinam, Cole Rafuse, Peyton Hoyt, Nick Deakin-Poot, Reilly Webb, and Hudson Wilson.
USports and the AUS have postponed the official start of the season until after the first semester as a safety precaution during the Covid-19 pandemic.
