Givani Smith to Kitchener

Still just a strong rumour at the moment. Sounds like it is for draft picks. This is a great add for Kitchener in my opinion, assuming it happens.

Done deal. From the Rangers email.

In exchange, the Storm will receive:

2nd round pick (MIS) in the 2021 OHL Priority Selection
2nd round pick (WSR) in 2024
Conditional 2nd round pick (KIT) in 2025

I had assumed the condition on the third pick is that it kicks in if he returns for an OA season. But Josh Brown says that it becomes a 2020 pick instead of a 2025 pick if the Rangers get back the one that they would lose to Barrie if Jacob Tortura reported (and it appears that he won't).

I've always liked Smith's game, even when he was hurting us (physically or on the score sheet).

I've advocated for adding Smith before & (prior to this year) he has always played us especially tough and scored a lot of goals here. OHL's Most Penalized Player in 2015/16 & 2016/17 makes us tougher ... & the PK lines busier perhaps. Good add, though expensive IMO (3 2nds & one is conditionally sooner if we never see Tortora).
