KOCHA DELIC FOCUSED ON FUTURE

Kocha Delic could have been forgiven last season for wondering if the hockey gods had cursed him.

A talented, tenacious forward from Ottawa who became Sudbury Wolves’ second-round pick in spring of 2020 after a stellar season with the Toronto Titans U16 squad, Delic was happy to sign with the OHL club just a few days later. With the 2020-21 season delayed and eventually cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, however, he was one of many Ontarians to seek out opportunities overseas, joining Karlskrona HK in Sweden’s J18 Region loop on a loan — only to watch that league put its season on hold, then cancel as well, due to rising case counts in the country.
