Storm acquire MacKenzie Entwistle from Bulldogs

The Ontario Hockey League’s Guelph Storm have acquired forward MacKenzie Entwistle in a trade with the Hamilton Bulldogs.

In return, Hamilton receives two second-round draft picks in 2020, a third-round pick in 2020, a third-round pick in 2021 and a third-round pick in 2023.

Entwistle, who served as the Bulldogs’ captain, has 15 goals and 12 assists in 29 OHL games this season.

“Mackenzie is everything you could ask for in a Bulldog,” said Bulldogs owner Michael Andlauer in a release. “For me he represented the true meaning of a captain. He is a great leader, who always handled himself with respect and humility while playing the game the right way with a tenacity and intensity that ended up earning him a well deserved spot on Team Canada in this year’s World Juniors.

“I am so proud to have had Mackenzie as one of our original OHL Bulldogs and only wish him the very best the last few months of his OHL career and onto his next chapter with the Chicago Blackhawk organization.”

Entwistle also suited up for Team Canada at the 2019 world junior hockey championship, scoring three goals in five games.
