Saginaw moves up in CHL Import Draft

The Saginaw Spirit have completed a trade with the Toronto St. Michaels Majors.

The Spirit sent prospect Ryan Green and the 47th overall pick in the 2007 CHL Import Draft to the Majors for the eighth overall pick in the Import Draft and a 15th round pick in the 2008 OHL Priority Selection.

“We wish Ryan the best of luck in Toronto,” stated Spirit president and managing partner Craig Goslin. “Ryan is a talented and bright young man who should get plenty of ice time with the Majors. We felt it was very important for the Spirit organization to move up in the Import Draft.”

Green was drafted by the Spirit in the fifth round, 97th overall, in the 2006 OHL Priority Selection. The 1990-born forward from Essex, Ontario, played the 2006-2007 season with Saginaw's Junior B affiliate, the Leamington Flyers.
