The Sarnia Sting has made a deal with the Sudbury Wolves to add size, strength and experience to their forward line.  Sting GM Nick Sinclair announced Tuesday that the club has acquired Michael Pezzetta from the Sudbury Wolves as well as an eighth-round draft pick in the 2018 draft.

Pezzetta is a sixth-round draft pick of the Montreal Canadiens and comes with some much-needed size for the forward line.  At 6’1 and 220 lbs Pessetta will be someone to reckon with when it comes to body checking.  Pezzetta also brings experience with him; he was drafted back in 2014 by the Wolves and has been Assistant Captain twice for the team.  Pezzetta already has 15 goals this season along with 16 assists, so look for this guy to make plays and fire the puck at the net.

The Sting will send defensive prospect Ethan Lavallee to the Wolves along with draft picks in 2019 and 2023.

According to Sinclair, the club will be looking to Pezzetta not only for his scoring and on ice play, but for his leadership ability as well.  Sinclair believes Michael will be a huge asset on the ice and in the dressing room.

There still could be some movement in the Sting lineup as the overage trade deadline is at noon on the 10th.
