Sarnia Sting picks up draft picks in flurry of trades

The Sarnia Sting have made a series of trades.

Defenceman Peter Stratis is coming to Sarnia from the Sudbury Wolves in exchange for a 2021 fourth-round draft pick, the club said in a press release Jan. 10.

The 6-foot, 187-pound overager has 65 career points and 125 penalty minutes.

“We are adding an experienced defenceman that can play in multiple situations and greatly helps strengthen the backend of our team,” said general manager Nick Sinclair.

In a trade with the Oshawa Generals, The Sting received draft picks in 2020 (2nd round) 2022 (5th round) and 2024 (3rd round) for back-up netminder Jordan Kooy.

And third-year forward Anthony Tabak was dealt to the Barrie Colts in return for a 3rd round pick in 2022, and 4th and 5th round picks in 2021.
