The Ottawa 67’s of the Ontario Hockey League have acquired 17-year-old centre Drake Rymsha from the London Knights in exchange for a draft pick.
Rymsha, a native of Huntingdon Woods, Michigan, scored five goals and had 12 points for the Knights in 62 games during his rookie 2014-15 OHL season.
He was a teammate of fellow 67’s forward Travis Barron with the Toronto Junior Canadians Triple-A minor midget elites in 2013-14.
In the trade, the Knights received a second-round pick in the 2018 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection.
The 67’s are back in action at the Arena at TD Place on Friday, October 9 against the defending Memorial Cup champion Oshawa Generals. Face-off is at 7 p.m.
