LONDON COMPLETES TWO TRADES

The London Knights have announced that the team has completed two trades.  The Knights will acquire forward Dante Salituro from the Ottawa 67’s as well as defenseman Mitchell Vande Sompel from the Oshawa Generals.  See below for the full details of the trades.

Salituro, a Willowdale, Ontario native will come to the Knights after spending time in the American Hockey League this season.  The quick and skilled forward is currently property of the Columbus Blue Jackets, after signing as a free agent last offseason.

Vande Sompel will return to his hometown to play for the Knights as the quick, intelligent defenseman was born and raised in London.  Vande Sompel, who currently sits third in defenseman scoring, was drafted by the New York Islanders in the third round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
