SARNIA, Ont. - The Sarnia Sting acquired centre Ryan Spooner from the Kingston Frontenacs on Thursday in exchange for centre Ryan Kujawinski.

Spooner, a second-round pick of the Boston Bruins in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, scored 14 goals and 32 points in 27 games this season with the Frontenacs (10-23-4).

"Ryan Spooner is one of the elite players in all of junior hockey," said Sarnia general manager Jacques Beaulieu in a statement. "We feel Spooner is another piece to the puzzle that will help us contend for an OHL championship this season."

Kujawinski, a 16-year-old former OHL first-round draft pick, produced one goal and six points in 29 games with the Sting (19-14-5).

Spooner is expected to dress for the Sting on Friday when they visit the Erie Otters.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
