(Saginaw, MI) The Saginaw Spirit hockey club added center Cody Bass and defenseman Andrew Hotham to the roster in a three way trade with the Mississauga Ice Dogs and Erie Otters.

Saginaw sent Spirit d-man Matt Corrente and a sixth round pick (2007) to the Ice Dogs for Bass and winger Jordan Skellett. Shortly thereafter, the Spirit traded Skellett, a third round pick (2009) and a fifth round pick (2009) to Erie for Hotham and a fourth round pick (2009).

"On behalf of the entire organization I would like to thank Matt and his family for their loyalty to the Saginaw Spirit," stated Spirit General Manager and Head Coach Bob Mancini, "Matt was an integral part of our team's rise to respectability. At this time I would also like to welcome Cody Bass and Andrew Hotham to our team. I am looking forward to their arrival in Saginaw."

Both Bass and Hotham are expected to be with the Spirit for Saturday's road game against the Plymouth Whalers.

Center Cody Bass was drafted by the NHL Ottawa Senators in the fourth round (95th overall) in 2005. The native of Guelph, Ontario was born on January 7th, 1987. Bass scored 5 goals, 10 assists, and 37 PIM in 21 games as captain of the Ice Dogs this season; 35 goals, 59 assists and 322 PIM in his four season career. Bass was invited to the 2007 World Juniors Team Canada Selection Camp.

Defenseman Andrew Hotham will join the Spirit as the team's third overager, born on August 29th, 1986. The native of Barrie, Ontario played his rookie season with the Barrie Colts before being traded to the Erie Otters in 2004. This season Hotham has notched 9 goals, 16 assists and 60 PIM; 19 goals, 66 assists and 342 PIM in his four season career. He was named team captain of the Otters following the trade of center Ryan O'Marra to the Spirit earlier this season. Andrew's brother Scott played one game for the Spirit in 2002 before heading to the Mississauga Ice Dogs; their father Greg played for the IHL Saginaw Gears in the late 1970's and spent seven seasons in the NHL.
