Peterborough Petes General Manager Michael Oke announced Friday that the team has acquired seven OHL Priority Selection picks from the Windsor Spitfires and two compensatory picks from the Ontario Hockey League, a total of nine picks, in exchange for forward Will Cuylle.
In the deal, Peterborough acquires one first round pick, four second round picks, three third round picks, and one fifth round pick, as follows:
- Kingston’s 2nd round pick in 2019
- Kingston’s 3rd round pick in 2020
- Windsor’s 5th round pick in 2020
- Windsor’s 3rd round pick in 2021
- Barrie’s 2nd round pick in 2022
- Windsor’s 3rd round in 2023
- Kitchener’s 2nd round pick in 2024* (conditional)
- 1st round pick (5th overall) in 2019 (OHL Compensatory Pick)
- 2nd round pick (end of round) in 2019 (OHL Compensatory Pick)
*Should Windsor acquire a 2nd round pick in 2020 or 2021, Peterborough will receive that pick and return Kitchener’s 2nd round pick in 2024.
The Petes will also receive the 5th overall pick and last pick in the 2nd round of the 2019 OHL Priority Selection as compensation from the Ontario Hockey League.
In return, the Spitfires receive Cuylle, who was selected by the Petes in the first round of the 2018 OHL Priority Selection from the Toronto Minor Midget AAA Marlboros.
“When we selected Will in the first round of this year’s draft, we did so with the intent that he would play in Peterborough,” commented Oke. “We felt positively about him becoming a Pete and were working to show Will and his family that there would be a great opportunity for him here, but Windsor presented us with an offer that we couldn’t ignore. We feel that acquiring these nine picks was a great opportunity and is what’s best for the future of the Peterborough Petes.”
