Canadian Press/several sites: Reports prospect John Tavares was traded from the Oshawa Generals to the London Knights.

Our Sports Central: Has most of the trades completed in the Canadian junior leagues.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
The OHL's trade deadline is Friday. The league instituted a trade freeze on Canadian junior team players from Dec. 11, which was the start of selection camp, until the world junior tournament concluded Monday.

NYIFC has the prospect blog with the feeds at the bottom of the page for most of the trades and the newspaper/league links for most clubs. I know Sarnia was considering a trade of prospect Matt Martin a while back and last year the Oil Kings was considering a trade of Robin Figren. If I see something Friday I will do a blog entry.

A Tavares trade was on the radar for a while now, it does not change his NHL draft status for those wondering.

There are three Canadian Junior leagues, the Western Hockey League (WHL), Quebec Major Junior Hockey league (QMJHL) and the Ontario Hockey League. (OHL)

Anyone with questions e-mail/respond and I will do my best to answer what I know about the trade deadline process in this league.
