Whalers and Spirit make trade on deadline day

The Plymouth Whalers and Saginaw Spirit, battling for first place in the OHL West, today made a trade with one another.

Plymouth sent third-year forward Vaclav Meidl (above) to the Spirit for second-year right wing Joe McCann (below) and a third-round pick in the 2007 OHL Priority Selection.

“Vaclav is a player I’ve followed since I was a scout with the Edmonton Oliers,” said Spirit head coach and general manager Bob Mancini.”We expect him to join us as soon as possible. This was a very difficult decision for us to make. I have tremendous respect for Joe McCann as a player and a person and I wish him the best of luck."
