The Kingston Frontenacs announced their acquisition of star forward Michael Dal Colle from the Oshawa Generals. Dal Colle is currently property of the New York Islanders by way of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft where the left winger was selected 5th overall.

In exchange, the Generals receive a good haul including 4 high draft choices and 1999 born winger, Robbie Burt. (more…)

After acquiring the likes of Stephen Desrochers, Liam Murray and Warren Foegele earlier on in the year, Doug Gilmour and the Kingston Frontenacs are putting everything they have to put together a championship winning run this season. (more…)

If the Niagara IceDogs have an abundance of anything other than shear talent, it’s defenders. With 9 defenders currently rostered Marty Williamson is not closed minded to clearing out some of the younger guys who will not help with the IceDogs’ run at a championship this year.  (more…)

The Oshawa Generals enjoyed their run to becomming Memorial Cup Champions last season after bringing many important pieces into the fold. Roger Hunt and crew sacrificed a total of 11 draft picks to bring in goaltender Jason DaSilva from the Peterborough Petes, veteran defender Dakota Mermis and Michael McCarron from the London Knights, and followed that up with the acquisition of Matt Mistele from the Plymouth Whalers. This time around, the Generals will be doing the opposite as Roger Hunt and staff feel it’s time to recoup some of the draft picks lost last year. (more…)

WindsorIf you’ve been following along on Twitter or through my posts, you’d know by now that Josh Ho-Sang’s name has come up on the OHL trade wire and has been now for a couple of weeks. I want to be clear when I say that nothing is imminent but the Windsor Spitfires are just gauging interest in the New York Islander’s first round selection. Rychel and crew are not new to this as they did the exact same thing with Kerby Rychel last year, who was eventually dealt to Guelph in a blockbuster deal just before the deadline.

I’ve now been told that Ho-Sang has submitted a list of 10 teams that he would be willing to play for, a list which is said to include the Mississauga Steelheads. Agree or disagree with the logic, but all signs point to the Steelheads wanting to load up for a run this year and Ho-Sang would certainly help them achieve their goals.Mississauga

As to why Ho-Sang would be a good fit in Mississauga as opposed to the obvious Erie or Sault Ste. Marie, he does not have anyone to answer to playing in Mississauga, he can play his game, which is widely considered a more selfish type of style. In Erie, you can’t play this type of game with guys like McDavid also there. Mississauga also has a cupboard full of young prospects, especially on the blueline that would help Windsor in their rebuild.

Fellow New York Islanders prospect Michael Dal Colle’s Oshawa Generals have also emerged as a team that Ho-Sang is willing to play for.
