Alex Zion, who was an all-city goaltender with Snider and posted a .937 save percentage, has signed to play with the Orangeville Americans' Canadian Junior A team in Ontario. That league, the Greater Metro Junior A Hockey League, produced former Komets star Artem Podshendyalov. (You know, the guy that left and opened the way for Mike Vaskivuo to be the Playoff MVP.) Zion is a senior at North Side, and he recently participated in a NHL pre-draft tournament in Boston.
