The Sarnia Sting have acquired 19-year-old forward Brenden Anderson from the Hamilton Bulldogs in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2026 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Priority Selection, the organization announced this week.

Anderson, a native of Ohsweken, Ontario, has garnered two goals and two assists through 64 career OHL games. Last season, the 6’5″, 203-pound left-shooting forward appeared in 12 playoff games with the Bulldogs, collecting a goal and an assist on route to the club’s OHL Championship.

“Brenden is a big winger with the physical tools we believe are important down the stretch and into the playoffs,” said Sting general manager Dylan Seca. “He is a player with some upside and more importantly has experienced the playoff grind and knows what it takes to be a champion.

“We are excited to welcome Brenden and the Anderson family to Sarnia.”

On Monday, the Sting also announced they’d acquired a second and fourth-round pick in the 2023 OHL Priority Selection from the Guelph Storm, in exchange for defenceman Chandler Romeo and a second-round pick in 2026.

The 19-year-old left-shooting defenceman from Cambridge, Ontario, was acquired by the Sting last January in a deal with the Hamilton Bulldogs. The 6’5″ Ottawa Senators prospect has tallied three goals and 20 assists through 81 career OHL games played, including 63 appearances in a Sting uniform.

“Over the last year, Chandler has been a valuable member of our organization,” said Seca. “When a team in our league came calling wanting to add him to their group, we saw the opportunity to give Chandler the chance to play more significant minutes and for us to add some additional picks in this spring’s draft.

“We would like to wish Chandler all the best with the Storm.”

The Sting are set for an eastern conference road swing this weekend as the club travels to Peterborough on Thursday to take on the Petes at 7:05 p.m. before making stops in Kingston for a matchup with the Frontenacs on Friday, and Ottawa to face the 67’s on Sunday afternoon.
