As the OHL Trade Freeze lifted on the morning of August 1st, rumours were flying, largely surrounding the Kitchener Rangers and what they would do with their disgruntled former 2nd round pick, defenseman Merrick Rippon.  (more…)


The Hamilton Bulldogs announced recently that the team has parted ways with longtime franchise GM/Head Coach George Burnett. George had been with the Bulldogs franchise since 2004-2005 back (not that long ago) when the team was known as the Belleville Bulls. (more…)

Two sources have come forward in recent hours suggesting the Sarnia Sting may be close to or at least in discussions to acquire goaltender Charlie Graham and high scoring forward Stephen Harper from the Hamilton Bulldogs.  (more…)

SudburyAccording to @InsiderWolves, the Sudbury Wolves are looking to move overage defender Jeff Corbett. Obviously the firesale is underway, Corbett will be among many Wolves to move this year as all of them are unhappy with the current situation.

Corbett is said to be heading to Belleville at the deadline. Why the wait? The Wolves want to make sure they get max value for the asset and think that value will rise as we get closer to the OHL’s early January trade deadline.

The Bulls have an excess of young defenders. One of which would most likely head to Sudbury as a significant part of the return.

If you’ve been following me either through Twitter or BBM, you’ll have known that both Brett Welychka and his agency have requested a trade from the London Knights for about a month now. The overage RW is widely regarded as the most versatile player in the league with experience playing every position except for goalie.

Welychka attended rookie camp this year with his childhood favourite Chicago Blackhawks, last year he attended rookie camp and training camp with the Tampa Bay Lightning where he turned a lot of heads and after his first season, he attended rookie camp with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

There have been many teams who have inquired about Brett Welychka’s services however it’s now down to four main players. Those being, the Niagara IceDogs, Erie Otters, Belleville Bulls, and the Owen Sound Attack. Any trade would begin with one player and at least two picks depending on the picks. Brett is an overage player, and out of the four teams that are considered the “main players,” all but one, the Belleville Bulls, would have to clear room, meaning they currently have all three overage players they’re allowed on their roster.

Brett has notched 115 points (51 goals, 64 assists) and managed to record 78 penalty minutes while being a +38 in 195 career OHL games over the span of five seasons.

Welychka is a fan favourite in London because he gives it his all night in and night out.
