Flint, Mich. – The Flint Firebirds announced today that the club has completed a trade with the Guelph Storm.
The Firebirds trade forward Eric Uba to Guelph. In return, Flint acquires Guelph’s third-round pick in the upcoming 2020 OHL Priority Selection and a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2023 OHL Priority Selection if Uba plays his overage season.
“On behalf of the Flint Firebirds, we would like to wish Eric all the best moving forward,” said Flint Firebirds Vice President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Barclay Branch. “We thank Eric for his contributions on the ice and in the community throughout his time in Flint.”
Uba was a ninth-round pick in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection by the Firebirds. He recorded one assist in four games with Flint during the 2017-18 season, prior to scoring 19 goals and adding 23 assists including a minus-13 rating in 67 games last season with the Firebirds.
