The Carolina Hurricanes picked another Plymouth Whaler, the second of this draft, when they selected defenseman Josh Wesley, son of Hurricanes great, Glen Wesley.  The young Wesley played most of his hockey while growing up in Carolina and is considered a "home-grown" prospect.

Wesley was rated at #115 by the ISS and is known as a tough defenseman who is still developing.  He is listed at 6'3 and 195 and will drop the gloves when necessary.  In his first season with Plymouth he had 2 goals and 6 assists.

We will have more on Josh in a bit.
