67’s Trade Ceci and Janes to Owen Sound

The Ottawa 67’s today announced that defenceman Cody Ceci, winger Steve Janes and a 3rd round draft pick in 2015 have been traded to the Owen Sound Attack for rookie defenceman Jacob Middleton and 18-year old forward Joseph Blandisi.

“We wish Cody and Steven all the best for the rest of this season and in the future,” said 67’s Head Coach and General Manager Chris Byrne.  “They both have made great contributions to our team and we thank them for their service.”  

16-year old Middleton, a 6’3” 194 pound left defenceman, was chosen 8th overall by the Attack in last May’s OHL Priority Selection Draft.  In limited action this season, he has one assist and  a +/- rating of +3.  Over the holiday break, Middleton played for Team Ontario at the World U-17 Championships along with his new 67’s teammate Dante Salituro.  “Middleton is a hard-nosed defenceman with skill, who can play in all situations,” said Byrne.

Blandisi, a 5’11” 190 pound right winger, was a 6th round draft pick by the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche last June.  He had 25 points in 37 games with the Attack this season.  “Blandisi is a strong two-way player with a good touch around the net,” said Byrne.  “We look forward to seeing him in action this Wednesday night when we host the Oshawa Generals.”
