Junior hockey deals don't get much bigger than this. And a top Flyers prospect is the headliner.
Flyers prospect Travis Konecny, captain of the Ottawa 67's, was traded on Wednesday to the Sarnia Sting along with forward Sam Studnicka for Sasha Chmelevski, Chase Campbell and eight OHL draft picks.
Rest assured, Flyers fans, Konecny is still property of the Flyers and did sign an entry-level contract with the team in July.
Konecny, who is returning from the World Junior Championship with Team Canada, had one goal and one assist at the tournament and has seven goals and 38 assists in 29 games with Ottawa this season.
