KNIGHTS ACQUIRE SMITH; TRADE PLATZER & CENTORAME

LONDON, ONTARIO: London Knights General Manager Mark Hunter announced today that the team has traded forward Kyle Platzer and defenseman Santino Centorame to Owen Sound.  In exchange, the Knights welcome forward Gemel Smith from the Attack as well as a conditional 5th round pick in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection (Owen Sound’s).

Smith, a Toronto native, was a 6th round pick of the Attack in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection.  He was drafted in the 4th round (104th overall) by the Dallas Stars in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.  Smith has played his entire OHL career with the Owen Sound Attack appearing in 235 games and recording 176 career points.  He’s currently ranked 6th in goals scored amongst OHL skaters this season with 26 goals in 40 games for the Attack.  

Platzer, a Waterloo native, was a 4th round pick of the Knights in the 2011 OHL Priority Selection.  He was drafted this past summer by the Edmonton Oilers in the 4th round (96th overall) and was a member of the 2013 OHL Championship London Knights.

Centorame, a Mississauga native, was a 4th round pick of the Knights in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection.  He’s appeared in 33 games for the Knights this season recording 5 points and 22 PIMS.  In November 2013, the NHL’s Central Scouting Services released their Preliminary 2014 Players to Watch list and gave Centorame a C Rating (indicating a 4th/5th/6th round candidate) in the upcoming NHL Entry Draft.
