Petes Exchange Picks with Attack Ahead of 2019 OHL Priority Selection
(Peterborough, ON) - Ahead of Saturday's 2019 OHL Priority Selection presented by Real Canadian Superstore, Peterborough Petes General Manager Mike Oke has announced that the team has traded picks with the Owen Sound Attack.
The Petes will receive Mississauga's 2nd round pick in 2020, Erie's 3rd round pick in 2021, and Owen Sound's 6th round pick in 2023.
In return, Owen Sound will receive Peterborough's 2nd round, 29th overall pick (via North Bay) in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection.
"With the number of picks we have this year, we have some flexibility," explained Oke. "We thought this was an opportunity with significant return that provides us with additional picks to use in the future, either in Priority Selections or trades."
The Petes now hold 17 picks through 15 rounds in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection, including the 5th, 11th, and 22nd overall picks.
Fans are reminded that there will be a player introduction press conference open to the public following the fifth round of Saturday, April 6's draft, located in the Peterborough and District Sports Hall of Fame in the North-East corner of the arena.
