The Erie Otters acquired defenseman Spencer Abraham from Brampton Wednesday for a conditional sixth-round pick in the 2014 Priority Selection.
Abraham, 19, a native of Campbellville, Ontario, has nine goals, 42 points and 28 penalty minutes in 116 career games, all with the Battalion, including a career-best six goals and 31 points in 67 games as a rookie in 2010-11.
He had nine points in 45 games in 2011-12 before reportedly suffering a season-ending ankle injury last February. He has a goal, two points and two penalty minutes in four games this season. Abraham makes his Otters debut against the Battalion in Friday’s 7 p.m. home opener at Erie Insurance Arena. He joins a defense that has allowed a league-high 27 goals in five games.
In other news, the Otters announced at a news conference Wednesday that Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine will serve as the club’s exclusive medical provider for the 2012-13 season. The partnership includes medical coverage at all home games, as well as office visits, continuing medical care, x-rays and rehabilitation for all injured players.
LECOM President John Ferretti said, “Not only will our doctors be on hand to treat injuries, but through their skills in sports medicine, they’ll be able to guide the players to prevent injuries and improve their health.” Sherry Bassin, Otters managing partner and general manager, who recently toured LECOM’s Wellness Center, said, “They’ve got a phenomenal facility.”
