Rangers and Greyhounds Complete Trade
The Kitchener Rangers have acquired defenceman Holden Wale from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
In exchange, the Greyhounds will receive Kitchener's eighth-round pick in 2020 and fifth-round pick in 2022 as well as Ottawa's third-round pick in 2024.
Originally a fourth-round pick of the Greyhounds in 2016, the 6'0, 182 lb Wale has played in 139 OHL games - recording seven goals, 25 assists, and a plus/minus rating of +21.
So far this season, the 19 year-old Brantford native has posted three goals and 10 assists in 36 games.
"We are excited to welcome Holden to the Rangers. His skating and puck moving ability will be a welcome addition to our team and a player that can fit nicely with our style of play," Interim Head Coach and General Manager Mike McKenize said.
"We look forward to seeing Holden in a Ranger uniform."
Pronunciation: Holden Whale
Hometown: Brantford, ON
