Sudbury Wolves have tidied up their back yard by moving defensemen Conor Ali to the Kingston Frontenacs for a fourth-round draft pick in 2020.
The 6-foot, 190-pound Ali, who has a 1999 birth date, was Sudbury’s third-round pick at the 2015 Ontario Hockey League draft.
Ali had dressed in five of Sudbury’s seven games this 2017-2018 season and had no points and a plus-minus rating of -4. He played in 49 regular season games for the Wolves in 2016-2017 and had 0 goals, 6 assists, 6 points and a plus-minus rating of -1 on a team that finished in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, well below the .500 mark.
At the time of his trade to Kingston, Ali was one of eight defensemen on the Sudbury roster.
The Wolves are off to a sluggish start to the 2017-2018 season with a record of 1-4-2 while the Frontenacs are at the top of the Eastern Conference with a 5-1-0 record.
