Guelph Storm send two players in separate deals on trade deadline day

The Guelph Storm have made a pair of moves ahead of the OHL trade deadline.

The first saw the Storm sending Cedricson Okitundu to Hamilton for the Bulldogs’ seventh-round selection in the 2024 OHL Draft.

Okitundu, 19, a left-shooting defenseman from Waterloo, was originally drafted by the Owen Sound Attack in the fourth round (76th overall) in the 2020 Priority Selection.

In 29 games with the Storm this season, he scored five goals and collected one assist. Okitundu has five goals and six assists in two seasons (72 games) with the Storm and the Attack.

Guelph will face Okitundu and his new team on Wednesday night when the Storm battle the Bulldogs in Hamilton.
