Spirit acquire Grand Blanc native Dalton Duhart


By @MichaelCaples –

Over the weekend, the Saginaw Spirit added another Michigan native to the roster.

On Saturday, the OHL franchise announced that they have acquired Grand Blanc native Dalton Duhart in a trade with the Barrie Colts.

In exchange, the Colts receive forward Nicholas Porco and defenseman Ian Lemieux.

Duhart, 18, is in the midst of his third OHL season. Last year, he started with the London Knights – the team that drafted him in the third round of the 2017 OHL Priority Selection – before being traded to Barrie. He recorded 23 points in 64 games.

He is a product of Belle Tire and Compuware.

In the trade, the Spirit also acquired a second-round pick in 2020, a second-round pick in 2024, a third-round pick in 2021, a third-round pick in 2022 and a fifth-round pick in 2023.

Saginaw is currently in first place in the Western Conference with a 9-6-1-0 record.
