OHL – It's said that the Saginaw Spirit is acquiring Owen Beck (MTL) from the Peterborough Petes. The deal isn't completely finalized yet, but it's heading in that direction. - Jeff Marek

Wow, that's interesting!

This is excellent news for the 33rd overall pick in 2022, as he will have the opportunity to participate in a second consecutive Memorial Cup, given that Saginaw will be the host team. This is a very promising announcement for his development, as he will have the chance to play with a better team and participate in a tournament featuring the best junior teams in Canada.

Expect several draft picks to be involved in this transaction!

Selected in the second round in the summer of 2022, the Canadiens prospect has accumulated a total of 16 goals and 14 assists (30 points) in 25 games with the Peterborough Petes in the OHL this year. It will be interesting to see if his offensive production can increase in the coming weeks, as he would undoubtedly become a key member of the Saginaw Spirit's attack.
