Barrie, ON- The Barrie Colts and General Manager Jason Ford have announced today that they have completed a trade with the Ottawa 67’s.

In the deal the Barrie Colts obtain right-winger Joseph Blandisi from the Ottawa 67’s.

In exchange the Colts send to the 67’s centreman Erik Bradford, Barrie’s 3rd round pick in 2015 and a conditional 3rd round pick in 2016 (Barrie’s).

Joseph Blandisi was originally drafted by the Owen Sound Attack in the 3rd round (61st overall) in 2011. On January 7th, 2013 the Markham, Ontario native was dealt to the Ottawa 67’s in a blockbuster trade with the Attack and now moves onto his 3rd OHL team, the Barrie Colts.

“Blandisi is a player that will add to our overall skill level and strengthen the forward units. He competes and plays the game with passion and we are extremely pleased to acquire him,” said Colts GM Jason Ford.
