The Kearney Hub reports that Red Wings prospect Kyle Aucoin will spend the second half of his USHL season a little closer to the team that drafted him:
The Tri-City Storm has completed a transaction with the Muskegon Lumberjacks by trading Kyle Aucoin for a first-round pick in the 2022 USHL Phase II Draft, a fourth-round pick in the 2021 USHL Phase I Draft and future considerations.
The Storm also gave up an eighth-round pick in the 2021 Phase I USHL Draft.
Aucoin, 18, of Hinsdale, Illinois, was selected 156th overall in the sixth round of the 2020 NHL Draft by the Detroit Red Wings. He made his debut for the Storm in the 2019-20 season and was named the 2019-20 USHL Scholar Athlete of the Year. Aucoin was named to the USHL’s All-Academic Team at the conclusion of last season.
