The Kitchener Rangers confused many, not so much by Kitchener-Rangerstrading away Curtis Meighan to the Ottawa 67’s but the acquisition of OA netminder and highly touted Detroit Red Wings prospect Jake Paterson, that soon followed. This comes just day(s) after trading away key guys in Justin Bailey and Brent Pedersen. Jake Paterson should be able to take the Kitchener Rangers into the playoffs but many don’t see them going much further than the first round.

The Saginaw Spirit had, and still do have just one player card remaining, meaning the Spirit were unlikely to bring in any more bodies in exchange for Paterson.

To Kitchener:

– Jake Paterson

To Saginaw:

– 3rd Round Pick (2017)
– 2nd Round Pick (2018)

Not to go unmentioned, the Rangers also sent overage centre Curtis Meighan to the Ottawa 67’s. Meighan is a native of Ottawa, ON which means Meighan will have the chance to finish out his OHL career playing in front of his home crowd.
