A busy day for Spits GM Warren Rychel has capped off with another blockbuster trade that sees goalie Jack Campbell heading north to the Soo Greyhounds.
In exchange, the Spitfires receive a pair of defencemen; MacKenzie Braid and Patrick Sieloff and a half dozen draft picks: Kingston’s 3rd round pick in 2012, Windsor’s 2nd in 2013, Erie’s 3rd in 2013, Owen Sound’s 2nd in 2014, Saginaw’s 2nd in 2014 and Sault Ste. Marie’s 2nd in 2015.
“Jack was the ultimate professional with the Spitfires,” GM Warren Rychel told windsorspitfires.com. “His dedication and commitment to the team was amazing. It will make him an excellent pro with the Dallas Stars. This is another step in our rebuild and a chance for him to win a championship in the OHL.”
Braid, 18, played in 59 games for the Barrie Colts in 2010-2011 and four this season with the Greyhounds. He is expected to make his Spitfire debut on Thursday night.
Sieloff, 17, is a highly-regarded blueliner currently playing with the US National Development team in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
