COMMITMENT ALERT | David Mabey commits to USports York University for 2022-2023


Ottawa, ON – The Ottawa Jr. Senators are proud to announce the commitment of defenceman David Mabey to USports York University (Toronto, ON) for the 2022-2023 season.

Mabey, 20, is currently in his second season with the Jr. Senators after joining the club from the GOJHL’s Listowel Cyclones.

“We are excited for David to continue his playing career with York University, highlighted General Manager and Associate Coach, Jamie Mayo. “The Lions are getting a quality player who brings a physical presence and puts his teammates first. He has become a leader in the dressing room and on the ice and we look forward to following his progress under Coach Herrrington over the next four years.”

The Guelph native currently sits third amongst defenceman scoring on the team with 15 points (7G, 8A) in 39 games of action. Noted as an effective two-way defenseman, Mabey has risen to the occasion when called upon this season when tasked with facing the opponent’s top line.

“My time at OJS has definitely helped prepare me for the next level not only on the ice but also the environment and the culture that is created off the ice,” said Mabey. “I chose York because I have heard great things not only about their hockey program but also their kinesiology program. I am very excited for the future and to get things started with York!”

Prior to junior hockey, Mabey played minor hockey for both the Waterloo Wolves and Kitchener Jr. Rangers programs, appearing in the 2017 OHL Cup. The 6’5, 195 lb broke into junior hockey in 2018, registering three goals and 19 assists for 22 points over 77 career games in the GOJHL.

Mabey becomes the fifth member of the 2021-22 Junior Senators to commit to either a USports or an NCAA program, joining Thomas Freel (Maine), Philippe Jacques (RIT), Bodie Nobes (Maine), and Simon Isabelle (RIT).
