Ryan Hanes traded to Sudbury

Ryan Hanes - 2nd Star on October 1, 2010.
The Ottawa 67's announced yesterday that 18 year old F/D Ryan Hanes was traded to the Sudbury Wolves for D Jake Cardwell. Ottawa also sent two picks to Sudbury (2nd and 7th rounds in 2011).

Ryan played 107 regular season games in Ottawa since joining the team in the 08/09 season and registered 3 goals and 4 assists during that span. He shifted between D and F but, according to the 67's announcement, he preferred to play on defense and this trade will give him a better chance for that.

On the return side, Jake Cardwell is a 6’2”, 198 lbs 18 year old who is, by all reports, a physical player. The Niagara Falls native, who has been at home since some time in October, played 108 games for the Wolves recording 5 goals and 14 assists. Expect to see Jake in his 67's debut tonight.

Elsewhere in the OHL, the Ryan Spooner deal was also concluded yesterday with the divisional rival Kingston Frontenacs stepping up to the asking price.  Peterborough sent Ryan Spooner and D Jeff Braithwait to Kingston who returned F Alan Quine and D Clark Seymore, a second-round pick in 2011 and a conditional second-round pick in 2013.

Kingston, already on top of the Eastern Division, believes it has loaded up to take a serious run at Mississauga, currently ranked at the top of the CHL standings and host of the 2011 Memorial Cup.

With Windsor putting Ryan Ellis and Zack Kassian on the trading block, there may not be any big moves left to be made by the time the trade deadline gets here.

Best wishes to you Ryan and we will see you back here at the traditional regular season closer against Sudbury in March.
