Saginaw and Windsor make late spring swap

From the Windsor Star...

The Windsor Spitfires' youth movement continued in earnest today.

The club completed two more trades and they allowed another deal made by former owner Steve Riolo to go through.

Vice-president of hockey operations Warren Rychel sent overage prospects Mitch Maunu and Ryan Garlock to the Saginaw Spirit. In return, the Spitfires received 16-year-old forward Anthony Soboczynski (pictured) and a conditional second-round pick in 2007 if both play at least one game in the OHL.

Windsor also traded overage prospect Peter Aston to the Oshawa Generals for another conditional second-round pick in 2008. That is also contingent on Aston playing at least one game for the Generals.

Both deals were made prior to the draft, but OHL rules do not allow them to be announced until June 1.
