Saginaw upgrades 'D' with Hill trade

The Saginaw Spirit have completed a trade with the Sarnia Sting, acquiring overage defenseman Jordan Hill in return for overage forward Joe Pleckaitis, defenseman Kyle Flemington, Guelph’s fourth round pick in 2010 and Saginaw’s sixth round pick in 2011.

Hill, formerly Sarnia's captain, is expected to join the Spirit in time for tonight’s home game against the Owen Sound Attack.

Hill is a third-year veteran of the Ontario Hockey League, with a combined 13 goals and 33 assists in 173 regular season games. The 1989-born Sarnia native has tallied four goals and 15 assists in 41 games this season.

After this trade, Pleckaitis was then flipped to Kingston for a fifth round pick in 2011.
