The Peterborough Petes have acquired defender Brandon Prophet and prospect Tyler Rolo from the Barrie Colts in exchange for disgruntled defender Cam Lizotte and a draft pick.

To Peterborough:
– Brandon Prophet
– Tyler Rollo

To Barrie:
– Cam Lizotte
– 4th Round Pick (Kingston, 2016)

Cam Lizotte, 6’02, 205lbs, left the Petes before the Christmas break, never to return. He had stated that he would like to partake in a fashion design program in school somewhere. Whether or not it was a plot to get himself traded to a contender will probably never be known for sure, but it sure looks that way.

Falconbridge, Ontario native Lizotte, 18 is a big heavy hitting defender who has 3 seasons of OHL experience, all with the Peterborough Petes. In 130 OHL games played, Lizotte has scored 14 points and added a whopping 218 penalty minutes. Lizotte is a prospect eligible for the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Headed to the Peterborough Petes in the deal is 1996 born defender Brandon Prophet. A native of Brockville, Ontario, has one year of OHL eligibility after the conclusion of the 2015-2016 season. Drafted by the Saginaw Spirit in the 2nd round of the 2012 OHL priority selection, Prophet has played in parts of 4 seasons in the OHL split between the Saginaw Spirit and the Barrie Colts.

In 221 OHL games played, Prophet has managed to total 51 points. This year, Prophet has totalled 7 points consisting of 1 goals and 6 assists added 57 penalty minutes and gone plus 12 in 36 games for the Colts. He is a prospect eligible for the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Prospect Tyler Rollo has spent the year with the OJHL’s Oakville Blades where he has scored 34 points featuring 12 goals and 22 assists in 27 appearances as a 18 year old in Jr. A. The native of Burlington, Ontario was selected 13th round of the 2013 OHL Priority Selection by the Barrie Colts.

Petes Rumour Update

I’ve heard quiet whispers regarding Sean Day. I think that’s all they are as of now though because I don’t see Sean waiving for Peterborough. Also heard Alex Peters (Flint) connected to the Petes in rumours.
