Just a couple hours after announcing the return of Alex Khokhlachev, General Manager Warren Rychel has added more speed and scoring to the club’s forward group.

The Spitfires have dealt forward Zach Lorentz to the Plymouth Whalers in exchange for overager Alex Aleardi.

Aleardi, 20, has played 293 OHL games with Kitchener, Belleville and Plymouth, putting up 92 goals and 93 assists with a +27 rating.

Lorentz was acquired from Peterborough back on November 22nd along with defenceman Trevor Murphy in the trade that saw defenceman Brandon Devlin and winger Derek Schoenmakers head to the Petes.

“This trade gives Zach an opportunity to join a good Plymouth team,” said General Manager Warren Rychel. “Getting Alex gives us some speed and frontline scoring.”

In 15 games for Windsor, Lorentz scored one goal and added five assists with a +1 rating.

Aleardi has been a consistent contributor in his last two seasons with Plymouth; scoring 51 goals and adding 43 assists in 107 games.

He is expected to be in the lineup on Thursday night, when the Spitfires host the Brampton Battalion at 7:05 PM.
