A few months back, the Mississauga Steelheads made a deal with the Sarnia Sting that barely registered on the OHL's trade-ometer.
On June 1, the Steelheads sent a fifth-round pick to the Sting for the rights to 1995-born defenceman Thomas Welsh, who had committed to play at Penn State, in a transaction that many believe completed the J.P. Anderson blockbuster made at the 2012 deadline. It was one of four minor deals -- Keegan Wilson to Ottawa for Nicholas Foglia was the biggest -- made that day, the unofficial start of summer in the OHL.
