The Guelph Storm partially cleared up its overage situation on Tuesday, sending forward Jacob Roach to the Kingston Frontenacs in exchange for a 15th round draft pick.

n 60 games for the Storm last season Roach scored 12 goals and added 11 assists.

The five-foot-11, 187-pound Brooklin native was an eighth round draft pick of the Sudbury Wolves in 2016, last season was Roach's first in the OHL. Guielph signed him as a free agent.

Guelph had five potential overage players still on its roster: Roach, Keegan Stevenson, Eric Uba, Pavel Gogolev and Nico Daws. Some of that group could be moving on to the professional ranks next season. Daws is eligible for the upcoming NHL draft and Gogolev could draw interest as a free agent after tallying 45 goals and 96 points last season.

The OHL plans on starting the 2020-2021 season on Dec. 1.
