When RedWings prospect Jake Paterson first returned from the NHL’s Detroit RedWings camp, Spirit GM Jim Paliafito wasted no time in publicly addressing Paterson’s future with the Saginaw Spirit saying it likely wouldn’t last much longer as Paterson wants and deserves to be on a contending team, which the Spirit most certainly are not.

Grey Cup Sunday was not quiet by any means around the Ontario Hockey League at least, not for the Owen Sound Attack and Saginaw Spirit who were finalizing details that would see Detroit Redwings prospect Jake Paterson head from Saginaw to Owen Sound in exchange for Jack Flinn and draft picks. Right as I was sitting down for kickoff in the CFL’s championship event, I received a text from a credible source saying Jake Paterson had been traded. I then messaged a source in Owen Sound who said “They were close on a goalie, Flinn and picks the other way.” To confirm, I then messaged two GM’s in the league who said Paterson to Owen Sound in exchange for Flinn and picks without me telling them what I had previously learned.

So why haven’t Paterson and Flinn switched locations? I’m told Jack Flinn’s family said no to the trade. Flinn is a native of Halifax, NS who originally came to the OHL VIA the QMJHL. Flinn’s grandma is nearby to Owen Sound.

Next season, Jack Flinn would count against the Attack’s overage total and I don’t believe the Attack have Flinn in their plans. If he doesn’t accept a trade somewhere soon, he may just find himself on waivers in which case Saginaw could place a claim on him in which case Flinn would have no choice but to report or hang up the skates.

The Saginaw Spirit released import goalie Nikita Serebryakov on Saturday, in a move believed to make room for Flinn (as Flinn would take the vast majority of starts.) Releasing players in the OHL does not require league permission, so there is no reason for the press release to come on Monday meanwhile the post (currently visable on the Saginaw Spirit website) is dated for Sunday, the day Paterson was supposed to be acquired. 

The deal was so close to done in Owen Sound teammates were saying their goodbyes to their goaltender Jack Flinn while Jake Paterson was packing up all his stuff and getting his sticks together at the Dow Event Center in Saginaw, MI.

At the end of the day, Paterson is still a member of the Spirit and the Attack continue on with Jack Flinn. Obviously there was something there more than just a rumour but never came into fruition.

The Owen Sound Attack have acquired RW Jacob Busch from the Oshawa Generals. The 1996 born native of Port McNichol, ON has registered 4 points (2 goals and 2 assists) in 12 games played for the Oshawa Generals this season.

– 2nd Round Selection in 2016

– Conditional 7th Round Selection in 2017 (Conditional on Jacob Busch returning for an overage season)
