Wolves Complete Trade with Greyhounds

(Greater Sudbury, ON) The Sudbury Wolves announce that they have acquired Dallas Stars defensive prospect Jacob Holmes, left-winger Marc Boudreau and the Hamilton Bulldogs’ 2nd round 2022 draft selection in exchange for captain Jack Thompson.

“Jack has been one of the top players that I have had the privilege of drafting and getting to know,” said Sudbury Wolves VP & General Manager Rob Papineau. “He is first class and comes from an incredible family. We are proud of his development as a Sudbury Wolf and wish him the very best. Jack has been a tremendous captain for our club. We have a great young group here that looks to finish strong and push towards the playoffs,” added Papineau.”

Holmes, 6’2”, 195lbs, was selected by the Greyhounds in the 1st round of the 2019 OHL Priority Selection from the York Simcoe Express. In 30 games this season with the Greyhounds, the Alliston native had 14 assists, 12 penalty minutes and was a plus 1. He was selected by the Dallas Stars in the 5th round of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, 143rd overall.

Boudreau is a native of Toronto and was selected by the Greyhounds in the 3rd round of the 2019 OHL Priority Selection from the Toronto Marlboros. The 6’2”, 180lbs forward has notched 3 goals and 7 assists through 32 games this season. Boudreau was also an invite to the 2021 Boston Bruins rookie camp this past summer.

“Jacob and Marc are two players we really have liked since their minor midget years,” said Papineau. “We like that they are both 18 and will be with our group for at least the next couple seasons. Marc is a high compete character player with strong hockey sense and will play in the tough areas. He is fully committed on both sides of the puck. Jacob is a smart player who has the ability to play in all situations. He makes a strong first pass and good decisions. Both Marc and Jacob are high character players and are excited and want to be here to help us push towards a playoff spot.”

The Sudbury Wolves would like to thank Jack for his commitment and dedication to the organization, and the entire Greater Sudbury community. We wish him the best of luck in his future hockey career.
