Spirit send Fletcher to Mississauga

Saginaw Spirit defenseman Scott Fletcher and a seventh round pick in 2007 have been traded to the Mississauga Ice Dogs for a fourth round pick in 2008 and a sixth round pick in 2007.

Fletcher was drafted by the Spirit in the second round (22nd overall) of the 2004 OHL Priority Selection. The Haslett native played 118 games with the Spirit, notching one goal, three assists and 294 penalty minutes. He went to the NHL Anaheim Ducks' work-out camp last summer.

Fletcher spent the first half of the 2006-07 season with the USHL’s Tri-City Storm and tallied two goals, two assists and 56 penalty minutes in 14 games with the Storm, also the new home of former Saginaw forward/defenseman Tom Mannino.

“This is an unfortunate deal for us," Tri-City head coach Bliss Littler said. "Scott was on loan from Saginaw and while you are hoping he’ll be here all year, the terms said they could move him prior to Jan. 10. Scott did a nice job for us in the time he played here.”

Fletcher will join former Spirit defenseman Matt Corrente (2004-07) and former Spirit forward Jean-Michel Rizk (2002-05) in Mississauga.
