He’s been staying in game shape by skating and and attending Caledonia Corvairs Jr. B games and practices. He was going to join the Corvairs if he couldn’t find an OHL suitor.¬† (more…)

ErieThe Erie Otters had stated they were looking to add at least one more body to the mix before the OHL’s trade deadline. They did just that this morning in a trade with the Belleville Bulls.

The Otters have landed 1995 born forwards Remi Elie and Jake Marchment from the Bulls. Elie is a Dallas Stars NHL draft choice and Jake Marchment is an LA Kings NHL draft choice. Elie was a 2nd round pick in 2013 by the Stars while Marchment was a 6th round selection by the Kings in 2014.

Marchment was subject of a 15 game OHL suspension earlier this season and had since requested a trade from the Bulls after it was announced that he would no longer be wearing the “C”.


The Erie Otters announced they’ve acquired Buffalo Sabres prospect Nick Baptiste from the Sudbury Wolves. In exchange the Wolves receive two players as well as four draft picks.

To Sudbury:

– Cole Mayo (1997 born defender)
– Travis Wood (1995 born LW)
– Sault Ste. Marie 2nd Round Pick (2015)
– Belleville’s 3rd Round Pick (2015)
– Erie’s 3rd Round Pick (2018)
– Erie’s 2nd Round Pick (2020)

To Erie:

– Nick Baptiste (1995 born RW)

Erie Otters assistant coach Jay McKee had this to say of the acquisition, ” Baptiste is a high end player that you know wasn’t finishing the year in Sudbury.. Kind of a no brainer targeting him.” McKee was fully aware of the heavy price tag and didn’t expect to be able to land the player any cheaper than they did.

The line of Debrincat-McDavid-Baptiste will be a threat to say the least and the combination of Baptiste and McDavid may continue into the NHL at some time in the future as Baptiste is a Buffalo Sabres prospect.

Erie is now the a shoe-in for the Memorial Cup.
