The Mississauga Steelheads announced this morning that they have traded goaltender, Joseph Murdaca to the Erie Otters in exchange for a conditional 14th round pick in the 2018 OHL Priority Selection.
Murdaca was originally drafted in the tenth round of the 2014 OHL Priority Selection by the Saginaw Spirit, and has appeared in 13 OHL games in his career, all with the Mississauga Steelheads. The 18-year-old goaltender was acquired by the Steelheads on December 14th, 2015, along with a ninth-round pick, for Cameron Zanussi and a fourth-round pick. In his OHL career, Murdaca holds a record of 2-2-0-1, with a 3.57 goals against average and a .867 save percentage. This season, Murdaca won his only start with the Steelheads, stopping 29 of 32 shots against the North Bay Battalion on November 6th.
The Steelheads would like to thank Joseph for his services, and wish him the best in his future hockey endeavors.
