Whalers move up in Priority Selection

The Plymouth Whalers made two deals today to move up in Saturday’s OHL Priority Selection.

Plymouth picked up the 80th overall pick in Saturday’s draft, along with Sault Ste. Marie’s fifth-round pick (93rd overall), in exchange for Erie’s sixth-round pick in Saturday’s draft (101st overall) and Plymouth’s third-round selection in 2009.

The 80th selection is originally London’s fourth-round pick in Saturday’s draft.

In a second deal with the Oshawa Generals, Plymouth acquired Oshawa’s second-round pick (30th overall) in Saturday’s draft along with the Generals’ fourth-round pick (71st overall) in exchange for Plymouth’s second- and fourth-round selections in 2009.

The Whalers’ first-round pick is 19th overall on Saturday.
