There looks like there may be major changes coming to the way players enter the CHL. We would still get the same long, exciting 15 round draft, but teams would no longer be selecting 15 or 16 year old players out of Bantam, they’d have to select 18 year olds, if they want to keep going with the idea of a draft.

I would just like to take this time to say goodbye and good luck to those players leaving Sault Ste.Marie and starting a new journey in their hockey careers.
First things first, a lot of people tend to forge that these guys we love to watch are just kids, all under 21, for most of them its a huge learning curve, something different being so far from home and especially all the way up here in the Sault. Each and every player, now and then, have played their hearts out, and left it on the ice for all of us fans and the coaching staff. I myself think that at the very least deserves a big thank you.

The last big move before the OHL’s trade deadline was a big one. The dead didn’t trickle in until well after the 12:00pm deadline but nonetheless resulted in Oshawa & Windsor making a trade and then Windsor and the Plymouth and Oshawa making a trade. Read the rest of this entry »

The Barrie Colts acquired Stephen Nosad from the Barrie Colts. Nosad has been the subject of some disciplinary action recently as he and a teammate were intoxicated at a game they were both scratched for. The Petes problems lied within their leadership group and this move will certainly help them point the ship in the right direction. Read the rest of this entry »

The Saginaw Spirit announced the acquisition of Import player Vladislav Kodola from the Sarnia Sting. Kodola is a native of Russia and was selected by the Sting in the first round in the #29 spot of the 2013 CHL import draft. By all accounts Kodola had been looking very disinterested in his last few games with the Sting. Read the rest of this entry »

Josh DeFarias was not happy with the lack of ice time he had been seeing in London. Therefore, he requested his move from the Knights and the Knights were going to move him with the first offer that made sense for the former 5th round draft choice. When Sarnia made their offer, the Knights knew this deal made sense. Read the rest of this entry »

As I said earlier on in the year, the Guelph Storm are a one stop shop for a team looking to make a cup run, because well, they’re the defending champs. Mike Kelly and Scott Walker knew this but weren’t going to trade away valuable assets without something very very good coming back the other way. Read the rest of this entry »

With the loss of Nathan Pancel, the Sudbury Wolves went out and acquired Charley Graaskamp from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. With the Greyhounds recent additions, Graaskamp had become an expendable asset who obviously held some value. Graaskamp is a native of Eau Claire, WI and had been playing center for the Greyhounds. In parts of two seasons with the Greyhounds, Graaskamp notched 18 points in 41 games with a third of his points coming this season. Read the rest of this entry »

The Peterborough Petes made a splash acquiring highly touted OA Nathan Pancel from the Sudbury Wolves. The Wolves are known rebuilders, as are the Peterborough Petes but the Petes do have a shot to make a run for the playoffs and Nathan will certainly help fill Nick Ritchie’s void, at least when it comes to putting the puck in the net that is. Pancel, since being drafted in the 5th round by the Wolves in 2010, has put up 217 points in 249 games played throughout parts of 5 years all with the Sudbury Wolves. Read the rest of this entry »

The Ottawa 67’s dealt overage centreman Erik Bradford to the Owen Sound Attack in exchange for two draft picks. Bradford, a native of nearby Orangeville, ON has notched 35 points in 36 games this season for the 67’s. Since being selected in the 10th round of the 2010 OHL draft, Bradford has notched 161 points in 267 games played over parts of 5 OHL seasons.
