Ottawa Senators prospect Logan Brown, who recently starred for team USA at the World Juniors (albeit having suffered an injury) - has been traded.
Now don't worry too much - the trade is at the junior ranks, so the Senators haven't lost their prospect by any means. But the trade is interesting for the kid's development.
While it's relatively late in the season - and he'll hopefully be an NHL'er next season, by going from the Windsor Spitfires to the Kitchener Rangers, he goes from one strong team to an even stronger one. With this trade, the Spitfires no longer have a single player drafted into the NHL, while Kitchener has a few in Brown, Adam Mascherin, Givani Smith, Connor Bunnaman, Kole Sherwood (signed by the Columbus Blue Jackets as a free agent), Connor Hall, and Logan Stanley.
This team has the potential to be a contender for the OHL championship, and perhaps make a Memorial Cup run, which can only benefit Brown.
