Sting Add Speed, Acquire Ang From PetesJanuary 8, 2018 9:15am
The Sarnia Sting have made another trade ahead of this week’s OHL trade deadline.
The Sting have dealt 17-year-old forward Brady Hinz, a second round pick in 2020, and a third round pick in 2022 to the Peterborough Petes in exchange for Florida Panthers prospect Jonathan Ang.
Sarnia Sting GM Nick Sinclair says the 19-year-old will add tremendous speed and top-end skill to a deep Sting forward group.
“With today’s transaction, acquiring Jonathan Ang from the Peterborough Petes we have added an exciting, experienced top-six forward that will immediately impact our forward group,” says Sinclair. “Jonathan is a player that brings high-end speed and skill. His ability to play in all situations will be an added dimension to our team, and his overall game will fit nicely with our current style of play.”
In 233 Ontario Hockey League games played with the Petes, Ang registered 171 points (73 goals, 98 assists).
The Markham, ON native was selected 9th overall by the Petes in the 2014 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection. Ang represented Canada on Team White at the 2014 Under-17 World Championships and was a recent invitee to Team Canada’s World Junior Selection Camp.
Hinz, selected by the Sting in the third round of the 2016 OHL Priority Selection suited up in 48 games for Sarnia over the past one and a half seasons.
Ang is expected to join fellow newcomer Cam Dineen and the Sarnia Sting in their debut Thursday night in Windsor.
