OTTAWA — The Ottawa’s 67’s and Sudbury Wolves swapped defencemen in a trade on Tuesday, with the 67’s acquiring 19-year-old defenceman and Carp native Evan de Haan and a fifth-round pick in the 2015 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection for defenceman Jonathan Duchesne.
de Haan (6-0, 160) had two goals and 12 points for the Wolves during the 2013-14 OHL season.
“Evan moves the puck well and we have plans to use him on the blue line during power plays,” said 67’s general manager Pat Higgins.
Duchesne, playing his third OHL season, had one assist in nine games with the 67’s this season.
“Jonathan was a hard-working members of our team and a great team guy. We wish him the best of luck,” said Higgins.
Ottawa returns to action on Saturday in Kingston against the Frontenacs.
