The Sudbury Wolves have acquired 19-year-old defenceman Anthony DeMeo from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
In exchange, the Wolves trade first-year defenceman Drew Wawrow to Sault Ste. Marie as well as Sudbury’s fifth round selection in 2020 and Mississauga’s third round selection in 2021.
“We are very excited to add Anthony to the Sudbury Wolves,” said Sudbury Wolves VP Hockey Operations and General Manager Rob Papineau.
“He is a veteran defenceman with 191 games played in our league as well as 23 play-off games. He has been part of two very successful teams in Sault Ste. Marie and we look forward to his experience helping our hockey club. Anthony is a good skater who plays a strong positional game, makes a strong first pass and sees the ice well."
DeMeo is a native of Port Washington, New York and is in his fourth season the Greyhounds. The 6-1, 190 lb. left-shot defenceman was a former third-round pick of the Greyhounds and can be described an a defensive defenceman who blocks shots and is a strong penalty killer.
"The Sudbury Wolves would like to thank Drew for his hard work and determination and wish him the best of luck with his future hockey career," said a news release from the team.
Fans will have their first chance to see DeMeo in action in a Wolves uniform on Friday when they host the Mississauga Steelheads at 7:05 p.m.
