Peterborough Petes General Manager Mike Oke announced on Monday that the team has acquired forward Brady Hinz and picks in upcoming OHL Priority Selections from the Sarnia Sting in exchange for centre Jonathan Ang.
Hinz, a 2000-born right winger, is in his second OHL season. He was originally selected in the 3rd round, 52nd overall in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection. The 5’8”, 160lbs Stratford, Ontario native has recorded 18 goals, 35 assists, 53 points, and 12 penalty minutes in 101 games with the Sarnia Sting. Hinz is eligible for the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
The Petes also acquire Sarnia’s second round pick in 2020, and third round pick in 2022.
“By acquiring Brady, we add a player to our team who has already been productive at the OHL level,” commented Oke. “He competes in battles, skates well, and has good puck skills. Additionally, we acquire some picks that we can use to add to our team in the future, be it through Priority Selections or through future player transactions.”
Ang, who was selected by the Petes in the 1st round, 9th overall in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection, has played 233 games with the Petes, registering 73 goals, 98 assists, 171 points, and 206 penalty minutes. The 6’0”, 170lbs assistant captain was selected in the 4th round, 94th overall by the Florida Panthers in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
“As someone who has been a good player and committed member of our team for the past three and a half seasons, it is difficult to see Jonathan go,” added Oke. “However, I believe this is a move that was in the best interest of the Petes now and in the future. We wish Jonathan nothing but the best this season and beyond as he pursues a professional hockey career.”
Hinz is expected to be in the lineup when the Petes host the Guelph Storm at the PMC on Thursday, January 11 at 7:05pm. Game tickets are available starting at $8 through the Collins Barrow PMC Box Office, online or, by phone at (705) 743-3561.
