Saginaw wheelin' and dealin'

New Spirit netminder Francois Thuot

The Saginaw Spirit acquired goaltender Francois Thuot from the Barrie Colts in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in the 2006 OHL Priority Selection.

Thuot is a 20-year-old native of Longueuil, Quebec. He was 18-12-5 with the Colts with a 3.07 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage in 39 games after two seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with Val D'Or.

"I'm happy we can add a goaltender with Francois' experience to the Saginaw Spirit," said Spirit general manager and head coach Bob Mancini.

Spirit trade pair of '04 picks
The Spirit have also traded the rights to forward Andrew Marcoux, a seventh-round pick in 2004, to the Mississauga Ice Dogs for a seventh-round draft pick in 2006.

Saginaw then dealt the rights to defenseman Tim Cavanagh to the Peterborough Petes for a conditional 15th-round draft pick in 2008. Saginaw picked him in the sixth round a year ago.
