Looking to bolster his team’s blue-line brigade with experience, Saginaw Spirit general manager Dave Drinkill has traded for fifth-year, overage defenseman Reagan O’Grady.
In an Ontario Hockey League trade that was recently finalized, Saginaw obtained O’Grady from the Mississauga Steelheads for three draft picks — a fourth rounder in 2019, a third rounder in 2020 and a sixth rounder in 2021.
“Reagan is a player we have kept an eye on for quite a while,” Drinkill said of the right-handed shooting O’Grady. “He brings leadership and a wealth of experience to our back end, having played in 230 regular season OHL games over the past four seasons.”
Saginaw is O’Grady’s fourth OHL team.
Besides Mississauga, he has also skated for the Sudbury Wolves and Kingston Frontenacs. He was Kingston’s first round pick at the 2014 OHL priority selections draft.
