Saginaw swaps draft picks with Majors

The Saginaw Spirit conducted a trade with the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors Monday afternoon.

The Spirit sent the Majors the 17th overall pick in the 2010 CHL Import Draft, which was obtained by the Spirit via an earlier trade with the Niagara IceDogs, and in return, the Spirit received the Majors fourth round pick in the 2011 OHL Priority Selection, the Kitchener Rangers' fifth round pick in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection and the Majors' third round pick in the 2013 OHL Priority Selection.

The CHL Import Draft is the primary method for CHL teams to acquire players from outside of Canada and the United States. Each team is allowed to have a maximum of two non-North American players on their roster, with the Spirit currently having on its active roster forward Ivan Telegin (pictured) and goalie Tadeas Galansky.

Additional terms of the trade were not disclosed.
