The National Hockey League (NHL) team made the announcement on Friday, the day after Canada won the gold medal at the World Junior Hockey Championship.
Wright had been loaned out to maple leaf training and was its captain. In seven games with the Canadian club, the 19-year-old forward has scored four goals and provided three assists for seven points.
In the NHL, he hit the mark once and was complicit in a success by one of his teammates for two points in eight games. The fourth overall pick in the last league draft Bettman also played five games with the Coachella Valley Firebirds of the AHL. At this level, he has amassed four goals.
In addition, many expect that the Frontenacs will soon trade Wright to another formation of the Ontario junior league.
