Peterborough Petes General Manager Michael Oke announced today that defenceman Troy Henley has been acquired from the Saginaw Spirit in exchange for Peterborough’s eighth round pick in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection.
Henley, a 6’0”, 210lbs rearguard from Paulsboro, New Jersey, has played 108 OHL regular season games, recording two goals, eight assists, ten points and 57 penalty minutes. Originally selected by the Ottawa 67’s in the second round, twentieth overall, in the 2013 OHL Priority Selection, Henley was traded to the Spirit from the 67’s in December, 2014.
This season, the 18 year-old has played fifteen games with the GOJHL’s Fort Erie Meteors. In his minor midget season with the Oakville Rangers, Henley suited up with current Petes defenceman and Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Matt Spencer.
The Petes have won nine of their last eleven games and are in a battle for the top seed in the OHL’s Eastern Conference. Great seats are still available for next Tuesday’s Teddy Bear Toss game by visiting the PMC Collins Barrow Box Office online, in person, or by calling (705) 743-3561.
