Peterborough Petes General Manager Michael Oke announced today the team has acquired Joe Carroll from the Sault St. Marie Greyhounds in exchange for the Sarnia Sting’s 3rd round pick in 2022, the Mississauga Steelheads’ conditional 6th round pick in 2023 and the Petes’ 12th round pick in 2023.
Carroll, a 2001-born left winger, was selected in the 4th round, 78th overall by the Greyhounds in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection. The 6’ 3”, 192 lbs Carp, ON., native registered 25 goals, 15 assists, 40 points, and 33 penalty minutes in 52 games, all with the Greyhounds during the 2019-20 season. The forward signed an Amateur Tryout Agreement with the Belleville Senators (AHL) on March 31, 2021, and suited up in three games.
“We’re excited to welcome Joe to the organization on the Petes opening night,” said Oke. “He is a proven goal scorer at the OHL level and will be adding some excellent leadership to our group.”
“I grew up playing in tournaments in Peterborough. In my fifth year in the league, I’m expecting big things from myself and want to do whatever it takes to push the Petes to the next step, I’m really excited,” explained Carroll.
Carroll is expected to be in the Petes lineup tonight and will be wearing number 14.
The Petes will welcome the Sudbury Wolves and first overall draft pick Quentin Musty for their home opener tonight at 7:05 pm. Tickets are now on sale for the 2021-22 season.
