In a decisive move ahead of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) trade deadline, the Barrie Colts have made headlines by trading Eduard Sale and Olivier Savard to the Kitchener Rangers. This transaction, confirmed by the league on Tuesday evening, involves the Colts acquiring centre Kyle Morey and defenceman Blair Scott, both 18 years old, along with a substantial package of draft picks.

The picks coming back to the Colts include a second-rounder in 2026 (Saginaw), two third-rounders in 2027 (Kitchener and Windsor), two fourth-rounders in 2025 (Peterborough and Ottawa), a fourth-rounder in 2026 (Kitchener), a fourth-rounder in 2027 (Brantford), a fifth-rounder in 2026 (Saginaw), and a fifth-rounder in 2027 (Niagara).

Kyle Morey, in his second OHL season, boasts six goals and seven assists for 13 points in 34 games with the Rangers. The Kitchener native, listed at five-foot-11 and 160 pounds, also holds a commendable plus-12 rating and was originally drafted by the Owen Sound Attack.

Blair Scott, another Kitchener native, has contributed one goal in 15 games this season with the Rangers. The left-shot defenceman stands at six-foot-one and 185 pounds.

Barrie Colts’ General Manager and Head Coach Marty Williamson expressed enthusiasm about the trade, stating, “By bringing in both Kyle and Blair, we’re adding two players who are going to see an increased role and ice time compared to what they were getting in Kitchener.” Williamson looks forward to their debut in the upcoming game against Erie, emphasizing the coaching staff’s commitment to their continued development.

The Colts are in the midst of a roster overhaul, having recently moved out captain Connor Punnett, forward Jacob Frasca, and goalie Anson Thornton. Alongside the picks acquired in these deals, the Colts have also welcomed defenceman Thomas Stewart and forward Brenden Sirizzotti to their lineup.
