Whalers make minor deal with Frontenacs

Might Jared Boll spurn the NCAA for the OHL?

The Plymouth Whalers made a minor trade last Saturday, but if it comes to fruition the team will have scored a major coup.

Plymouth sent a fifth-round pick in next year's OHL Priority Selection to the Kingston Frontenacs in exchange for forward Jared Boll. The pick was originally Kingston's and obtained by the Whalers in the Rane Carnegie trade last summer.

Kingston had drafted the Chicago-area native in the sixth round of the 2002 OHL draft, but Boll headed to the USHL with hopes of playing NCAA hockey. The 19-year-old captained the Lincoln Stars this past season and has also signed with Minnesota-Duluth for this fall. Boll scored 23 goals and 47 points in 54 games last year and also had a league-leading 294 penalty minutes.
