Saginaw obtains OA Sutch from Colts

The Saginaw Spirit announced this week that the team has completed a deal with the Barrie Colts, obtaining overage forward Gregg Sutch from for the Spirit’s fifth-round pick in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection.

The Newmarket, Ont., native has appeared in 213 OHL games after being the Sarnia Sting’s first-round selection (11th overall) in 2008. Sutch has recorded 27 goals, and 45 assists for 72 points along with 276 penalty minutes while suiting up for the Sting, Mississauga Majors and Colts in his OHL career.

Originally drafted by the Buffalo Sabres, Sutch is now a free agent in terms of his NHL status.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound forward has Memorial Cup experience going back to his days in Mississauga when the Majors hosted the event in 2011.

Sutch’s arrival brings the Spirit’s overage player number to four as he joins Garret Ross, Carlos Amestoy and Brandon Archibald.
