Colts / Niagara Trade

The Colts traded 2 third rounders this season to Niagara for a total of 4 picks, 3 of which are in 2014 and beyond. This deal was likely made with the point of improving their opportunity to stock up for a 2014 Memorial Cup bid. As 2013 picks cannot be dealt once they're selected (other than the first rounder) this gives the Colts additional chips to deal for players for the upcoming season. They also get an additional 3rd and 5th out of the deal. As it's unlikely that the 3rd round 2013 picks will be big contributors for the cup run next season, it seems to make sense from that perspective.

The Colts shipped Kitcheners third round pick in 2013 and Ottawa’s third round pick in 2013 to Niagara in exchange for North Bay’s fifth round pick in 2013, Niagara’s third round pick in 2014, Windsor’s third round pick in 2015 and Niagara’s third round pick in 2016.
