Peterborough Petes General Manager Michael Oke announced Wednesday that the team has acquired a conditional fifteenth round pick from the North Bay Battalion in exchange for forward Chad Denault.
In the deal, Peterborough acquires North Bay’s fifteenth round pick in the 2024 OHL Priority Selection that can improve based on Chad achieving personal accomplishments this season.
In return, the Battalion receive Denault, who was selected by the Petes in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection. The 6’1.5”, 182lbs right winger recorded 11 goals, 12 assists, 23 points, and 94 penalty minutes in 152 regular season games with the Maroon and White.
“Chad has been a tremendous member of the Petes family and the Peterborough community,” commented Oke. “In addition to being an excellent teammate, he has been a great ambassador for our team over the last four seasons.”
Oke added, “This move will allow Chad the opportunity to play in situations that may not have been available to him in Peterborough.”
The Petes are in action on Thursday, December 5 for the annual Teddy Bear Toss Night. Tickets for all regular season home games are available through the PMC Grant Thornton Box Office in person and over the phone at (705) 743-3561 Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 5:00pm, and 24 hours a day online.
