(CP) - The Ontario Hockey League's other Donati brother is on the move.

Talented forward Justin Donati was dealt from the Toronto-St. Michael's Majors to the Sudbury Wolves on Tuesday, along with a fourth-round pick in the 2007 draft. The Majors receive rookie forwards Jesse Messier and Justin Vaive, along with sixth-and 15th-round picks in 2008.

Donati is 14th in OHL scoring with 26 goals and 30 assists in 35 games for the Majors. His fraternal twin brother Tyler leads the league with 77 points (36-41) in 40 games for the Belleville Bulls.

The 20-year-olds were teammates with the Majors last year, but Tyler was dealt to the Bulls prior to the start of this season.

Justin is expected to add some serious scoring punch for the Wolves, who own one of the league's most anemic offences. Sudbury sits third in the Central Division, while the Majors are mired in last.

Messier, 18, had 16 goals and 15 assists in 40 games for the Wolves. Vaive, the son of former NHL forward Rick Vaive, plays U.S. college hockey for Miami (Ohio).

The Wolves made two other trades, acquiring second-year goaltender Sebastien Dahm from Sarnia for a fourth-round pick in 2007 and shipping netminder Kevin Beech to Erie for a 14th-round selection in 2007.
