Peterborough Petes General Manager Michael Oke announced today that the team has acquired forward Jake Bricknell from the Guelph Storm in exchange for Peterborough’s 15th round pick in the 2018 OHL Priority Selection.
Bricknell, a 6’1”, 212lbs centre from Port Perry, Ontario, has played in 205 OHL games between the Belleville Bulls, Hamilton Bulldogs, and Guelph Storm. He has recorded 19 goals and 23 assists for 42 points, along with 252 penalty minutes, in that span.
“Jake has a lot of OHL experience,” noted Oke. “He will continue to play with Cobourg, but will be available to be called up by the Petes during the second half of the season or in the playoffs.”
In return, Guelph receives Peterborough’s 15th round pick in the 2018 OHL Priority Selection.
