Sting Deal Hargrave To Attack
tuesday october 29, 2013
Sarnia, On – Director of Hockey Operations Bill Abercrombie announced today that the hockey club has completed a deal with the Owen Sound Attack in which forward Brett Hargrave was dealt for a combination of draft picks.
The Sting acquires a conditional 2nd round pick in 2016, a 3rd round pick in 2017 (Windsor’s) and a 4th round pick in 2014. The condition on the 2nd round pick in 2016 stipulates that if the Attack acquires a 2nd round pick in 2014 by this year’s trade deadline then the Sting would receive that choice rather than the 2nd in 2016.
Abercrombie explains his thoughts on the acquisition.
“This is a trade that satisfies both our need to get fair value and for Brett to be able to get back on the ice and return to playing. We are extremely pleased with the package of draft picks received in return for Brett. These are all high picks which are valuable assets moving forward. We had to re-stock our draft picks and with some of the moves we have made this year we are now in very good shape moving forward in this department.”
