Peterborough Petes General Manager Michael Oke announced Thursday that the team has acquired forward Michael Little from the Mississauga Steelheads in exchange for forward Nick Isaacson and an OHL Priority Selection pick.
Little, a 2000-born left winger, was selected in the third round, 59th overall by the Steelheads in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection. The 6’0”, 187lbs Mississauga native has recorded 23 goals, 33 assists, and 56 points in 149 games with the Steelheads, including 8 goals, 12 assists, and 20 points this season.
“In Michael we’re acquiring an energetic and highly competitive player,” commented Oke. “He is strong on the forecheck and on his skates, and likes to be physical. We’re excited to add him to our group.”
The Petes also acquire a conditional sixth round OHL Priority Selection pick in 2023 from the Steelheads.
Little is expected to be in the lineup when the Petes host the Oshawa Generals tonight at 7:05pm. Tickets are available through the Collins Barrow Box Office in person, over the phone at (705) 743-3561, and online.
In the deal, Mississauga acquires 1999-born forward Nick Isaacson and Owen Sound’s third round pick in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection.
“We thank Nick for the contributions he has made in Peterborough over the past three years and wish him nothing but the best as he moves forward in Mississauga,” Oke added.
In an additional roster move, forward Jake Partridge has been released from the club.
