Playing careerEdit

Sonne began his major junior career with the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL in 2004–05, playing in six games as a 15-year old. After a 21-point rookie campaign in 2005–06, he scored 21 goals the next season and was subsequently drafted 85th overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the St. Louis Blues. A strong start in the 2007–08 season was derailed when he suffered a broken ankle in November 2007 that caused him to miss the majority of the regular season.[1] He emerged as a top player in the WHL, finishing third in league scoring in 2008–09 with 100 points 62 games. He was named to the WHL East First All-Star Team, along with teammates Paul Postma and Brandon Kozun, and won the Four Broncos Memorial Trophy as WHL player of the year, beating out Western Conference nominee and Bob Clarke Trophy-winner Casey Pierro-Zabotel of the Vancouver Giants.

Sonne's dedication to improving his overall game as well as his leadership abilities earned him a spot with the Canadian junior team at the 2009 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships.[1] He recorded one goal and two assists in six games, as Canada won its fifth consecutive gold medal at the tournament.[2]
