Spence sent down to OJHL

Defenceman Craig Spence of Chatham has joined the Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Georgetown Raiders after being caught in a numbers crunch with the OHL’s Mississauga Steelheads.

Spence, 17, was a seventh-round pick by the Steelheads in the 2018 OHL draft. He signed with them after playing last season with the Chatham Maroons.

He hasn’t played a regular-season game with the Steelheads, who have eight other defencemen on their roster.

Spence has no points in two games with the Raiders. His teammates include his other brother Grant, who’s in his second OJHL season.

Seys winning with Warriors

Ursuline graduate Brendan Seys of Port Lambton helped the Wayne State Warriors win the Northwood Invitational men’s golf tournament Monday in Midland, Mich.

Seys, who’s a senior, tied for second in the individual standings with a total of 216. He posted rounds of 70, 73 and 73.

Seys won his previous two tournaments, raising his career total to five collegiate titles. He shot a 6-under 66 to win the rain-shortened HawksHead Invitational in South Haven, Mich., and finished 7 under for three rounds at the Doc Spragg Fall Invitational in Findlay, Ohio.
