Former Soo Greyhounds winger Jack Kopacka has had his National Hockey League rights transferred.
The 6-foot-2, 200 pound Kopacka, who had three productive seasons with the Greyhounds after being an eighth round pick at the 2016 Ontario Hockey League priority selections draft, is now the NHL property of the Ottawa Senators following a trade today with the San Jose Sharks.
Kopacka, who has a 1998 birth date, has been assigned by Ottawa to its American Hockey League affiliate, the Belleville Senators.
A Michigan native, Kopacka was originally drafted to the NHL in 2016 as a fourth round pick of the Anaheim Ducks.
