Anaheim Ducks’ prospect Julius Nattinen has a new home.
After just one season with the Barrie Colts, who are now heading into a rebuild, the Ducks’ 2015 2nd round pick has seen his OHL rights traded to the Windsor Spitfires.
Nattinen scored 22 goals and added 71 points during 52 regular season games with the Colts while (primarily) centering the top line. He followed that up with eight points in 12 playoff games before the Colts were swept by the Niagara IceDogs.
Nattinen will join a stacked team headlined by a trio of 2016 1st round picks in in Logan Brown (Ottawa), Mikhail Sergachev (Montreal) and Logan Stanley (Winnipeg).
Assuming Nattinen plays in the OHL next season he’ll have the opportunity to play big minutes on a very good team that is set to host the 2016 Memorial Cup.
