For the second time in three days, the Kitchener Rangers have made a deal as they shore up the team for the stretch run.
On Friday, the team announced it had acquired defenceman Holden Wale from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
In exchange, the Rangers have given up their eighth-round pick in 2020 and a fifth-round pick in 2022 as well as Ottawa’s third-round pick in 2024.
“We are excited to welcome Holden to the Rangers. His skating and puck-moving ability will be a welcome addition to our team and a player that can fit nicely with our style of play,” Rangers interim coach and general manager Mike McKenzie stated.
Wale, who is from nearby Brantford, has recorded seven goals and 25 assists in 139 games with Sault Ste. Marie.
This deal follows on the heels of a deal on Wednesday with the Oshawa Generals for right winger Serron Noel.
