The Guelph Storm have traded overage goaltender Justin Nichols to the Oshawa Generals in exchange fore two draft picks, just before the OHL’s overage trade deadline on Friday at noon. 

Guelph Storm GM Mike Kelly stated at the beginning of the season that Justin Nichols would not be in Guelph for very long due to the rebuild the team is going through. He lasted a lot longer than most people expected before eventually being shipped out to the Oshawa Generals, who aren’t in a much different situation from the Storm.

Nichols, a native of St. Catherines, Ontario is originally a 3rd round draft pick of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds back in 2011, Nichols who is currently playing out his final year of OHL eligibility, has a save percentage of .903 with a goals against average of 3.83 on the last place Guelph Storm team which has been the youngest team in the OHL for much of the season.

Justin Nichols is a free agent at the NHL level.

Oshawa Generals Rumour Update

Heard late Wednesday night that the Generals were looking to acquire a back up goaltender. I believe their intention could be to trade Jeremy Brodeur and find a backup for Justin Nichols. Stay tuned!
