The Oshawa Generals announced they have acquired top scoring centre Brett Neumann from the Kingston Frontenacs as they begin their push towards the playoffs.
The Generals traded Nick Wong, a second round draft pick, a third round draft pick, and a conditional second round draft pick, while receiving Neumann in return.
“This trade gives us an opportunity to have three players on our roster in the top 16 in league scoring,” said vice president and general manager Roger Hunt. “It also gives Nick a fresh start in Kingston as he continues his OHL career. We’d like to thank Nick for his year and half as a General and wish all the best with his hockey career”
Neumann is in his fourth OHL season where he has already surpassed his season high point totals this year with 25 goals and 23 assists in 39 games with the Frontenacs.
Neumann made his first appearance in a Gens jersey Sunday when the team lost to the Ottawa 67s 7-4. He scored his first goal in a Gens uniform in the second period.
The Gens also announced that they have traded backup goalie Cole Ceci to the Erie Otters.
In return, the Generals received a 10th round draft selection.
“This trade allows Cole to have new opportunities with Erie and finish out his overage season” said Hunt. “I wish him all the best as he finishes his OHL career with the Otters.” He holds a career 12-20-2-0 record, to go along with his 3.71 GAA, and his .890 save percentage.
