Looking to fill the void created by the departure of a den of graduated defenders, Sudbury Wolves have acquired overage defenseman Kyle Rhodes from the Guelph Storm.

Sudbury will send Guelph a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2019 Ontario Hockey League draft in exchange for the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Rhodes, who has played in more than 160 regular-season games for the Storm over the past three years.

“He can be described as a steady, stay at home, shut-down defenceman who gets the job done,” Wolves general manager Rob Papineau said of Rhodes. “Kyle is a guy we had targeted moving into next season and we have been in discussions with Guelph for the past few weeks.”
