Tullio and McShane Headed to Slovakia
Oshawa, ON- The Oshawa Generals announce that forward Ty Tullio and overage forward Allan McShane have been loaned to MHK Liptovsky Mikulas of the Slovak Extraliga, Slovakia's top men's league.
Tullio was drafted 11th overall by the Generals in the 2018 OHL Priority Selection, and since then, has settled right in as a top player across the league. In his sophomore season shortened by COVID-19, Tullio played 62 games with the Generals.
Tullio was drafted in the 5th round by the Edmonton Oilers in the recent NHL draft.
On the dubbed 'TNT' line with Phil Tomasino, and former General Brett Neuman, Tullio scored 27 goals and 39 assists for a career-high 66 points, 24 point increase from last season.
McShane is entering his final year with the Oshawa Generals as one of the top playmakers in the OHL. In 62 games last season, he scored 23 goals and 44 assists. Drafted 19th overall by the Erie Otters in 2016, he was also selected in the 4th round by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2018 NHL draft.
His season was also highlighted by seven games with at least three points.
Import defensemen David Mudrak is also currently playing in the Slovak Extraliga with HC Kosice.
While both players will begin their 2020-2021 seasons in Slovakia, they have both committed to rejoining the Generals in time to quarantine before the start of OHL Training camp on Jan. 23.
