Whalers acquire Lock from Peterborough

The Plymouth Whalers acquired 17-year-old center Steve Lock Tuesday from the Peterborough Petes in exchange for a conditional 15th-round draft choice.

The conditional 15th round pick has the potential of becoming a third-round pick, should all the conditions be met.

The 6-foot, 176-pound Lock scored a goal with four assists for five points and 20 penalty minutes in 54 games last year in his rookie season with Peterborough. The Petes originally selected Lock in the third round (56th overall) of the 2005 OHL Priority Selection.

In 2005-06, Lock, from Waterloo, Ont., tallied nine goals with 17 assists for 26 points in 39 games for the Cambridge Winter Hawks of the Mid-Western Junior B Hockey League.

Lock is eligible for the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
