Recapping Trade Deadline

Coming into this season, yours truly couldn’t wait to see how the Ontario Hockey League’s trade deadline would unfold and how the London Knights and the Windsor Spitfires would load up for the Western Conference Championship and the OHL Championship.

Well, they didn’t disappoint, but you must look past the two franchises and at the Sault St Marie Greyhounds and the Erie Otters. This is turning out to be a four-way battle that, if you’re a hockey fan, can expect the best, most hard fought hockey we’ve seen in a long time.

Let the fun begin!

The Otters began it all by adding Warren Foegele from the Kingston Frontenacs. They followed that up with Anthony Cirelli from the Oshawa Generals and Cameron Lizotte from the Barrie Colts

The week leading up to trade deadline day saw the OHL’s top team, the Greyhounds add blueliner Noah Carroll from the Guelph Storm. It’s about all the Greyhounds needed to do – solidify their back end.

Not to be outdone, the Knights added Dante Salituro from the Ottawa 67’s, Mitchell Vande Sompel from the Oshawa Generals and Mitchell Stephens from the Saginaw Spirit.

The Spitfires hosts of the Memorial Cup, wanted to go in as Champions and brought in Jeremy Bracco From the Kitchener Rangers, Daniel Robertson from the Oshawa Generals and Adam Laishram from the Hamilton Bulldogs.

I like the Greyhounds as a team and Carroll should help them. But you can’t count out the London Knights with the additions they’ve made. The Otters are improved with Cirelli and the Spitfires….

Ah heck, it’s too close to call. Let’s all watch and enjoy.
