Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Erie Otters 4

A late delay of game penalty by the Attack resulted in an Otter power play goal with 35 seconds left in regulation that gave Erie a 4-3 home win. Lightning prospect Jake Dotchin was scoreless in the game, but the story here is that he was still with the Attack. He was rumored to be involved in trade talks this week as the OHL trade deadline approached. Senators first round defenseman Cody Ceci was acquired by Owen Sound and had an assist in his Attack debut.

TRADE

According to multiple reports, Lightning 2012 first rounder Slater Koekkoek was traded late Wednesday night from the Peterborough Petes to the Windsor Spitfires for Avalanche prospect Michael Clark and two second round picks. Koekkoek was rumored to be on the trade block as the Petes are tied for last in the league in points and continue to undergo changes on and off the ice. They’ve replaced their coach and general manager already this year.

Windsor is not much better in the standings than Peterborough (seven points), but their GM, former NHLer Warren Rychel, heads a strong major junior program with the resources to put a winner on the ice. Koekkoek will be back in juniors again next year and Rychel likely had next year in mind when he made this deal. The hope for Koekkoek, who was the Petes captain, is he receives the proper discipline and development to make the jump to the AHL a little smoother in two years while returning Windsor to OHL prominence.
