Kislinger sent to Flint for pick

NORTH BAY, Ont. — The North Bay Battalion has traded left winger Max Kislinger to the Flint Firebirds, the Ontario Hockey League club announced Tuesday.

In exchange for the German import, the Battalion received a conditional 15th-round pick in the 2020 OHL Priority Selection. It becomes a sixth-rounder if Kislinger plays a game with Flint.

The Troops, who have Swedish defenceman Adam Thilander returning for a second campaign, missed the playoffs last season and hold the seventh overall selection in the Canadian Hockey League Import Draft, which will be used to fill the club’s two-player import quota. The draft is scheduled for June 28.

Kislinger, a 19-year-old native of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, scored six goals and added as many assists for 12 points in 35 games last season, missing time to a fractured wrist suffered Oct. 6 in a 3-1 loss to the visiting Owen Sound Attack and while playing for Germany at the second-level world junior tournament. He had 12 goals and eight assists for 20 points in 68 games as a rookie in 2015-16 after being chosen in the first round, 43rd overall, of the 2015 CHL Import Draft.

Kislinger played in 2013-14 with the Peterborough Petes minor midgets while attending Lakefield College School in Lakefield, Ont., also skating with the school’s top team, before playing the following season with the Salzburg under-18 squad in Austria.
