A trade between the Soo Greyhounds and Kingston Frontenacs that was an exchange of overage goalies Bailey Brkin and Christian Propp has worked out well so far for both Ontario Hockey League teams.
As Brkin has helped the Greyhounds reverse a losing skid, so too has Propp done the same for the Frontenacs.
The two goalies were traded for one another on November 12 after Brkin cleared Western Hockey League waivers that day and then was claimed by Kingston and then dealt to the Soo for Propp.
Since putting on a Greyhound jersey, Brkin has a 4-2-0 record with a 3.01 goals against average and .900 save percentage for a Soo squad that is 10-14-1 and in ninth place in the Western Conference.
And through three games for the Frontenacs, Propp has his act together with a 2-0-1 record, 2.59 goals against average and .922 save percentage for a Kingston crew that has moved into ninth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 5-14-4. Propp had struggled mightily for the Soo with a 4-7-1 record, 4.79 goals against average and .853 save percentage.
Both the Soo and Kingston are just one point out of the eighth-and-final playoff spot in their respective conferences.
