Sea Wolves Sign Top Defenseman

After consulting with his brothers and dad, Mississippi Sea Wolves head coach Bob Woods signed Sheldon Brookbank, voted the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League's "Top Defenseman" in 2000-2001. Sheldon played with Lance Woods, the brother of Bob, for the Humbolt Broncos last season where the 6'2" 205 pound defenseman netted 14 goals, 35 assists and 281 penalty minutes.

Besides winning the top defenseman award, Sheldon took home several major honors over the past two seasons including: SJHL All-Star, First Team All SJHL, Team MVP, Top Defenseman at the All-Star Game, Rookie of the Year, and Playoff MVP.

Bob Woods said, "I consulted with my brothers and my father who have seen Brookbank play in Saskatchewan. It's nice to have people you can trust to give you some further insight on a player. His achievements speak for themselves. He fits the role of a young defenseman perfectly, well rounded and tough enough to take care of business on the ice."

Sheldon's older brother Wade won championships with Oklahoma City and Orlando Solar Bears last season in both the CHL and IHL. Brookbank will head first to training camp with Quebec with the Sea Wolves' new affiliate the Citadelles.
