Jets get Hosking from Pittsburgh, send Bessey to Battle Creek

WATERFORD, Mich. - The Metro Jets announced today that the team has reacquired defenseman Josh Hosking from the Pittsburgh Vengeance and traded defenseman Aaron Bessey to the Battle Creek Jr. Revolution.

Hosking, sent to the Vengeance at the NA3HL trade deadline this past February and obtained this week for a 12th-round pick in the 2013 NA3HL Draft, began the 2012-13 season with the Jets after a stint in the NAHL with the Jamestown Ironmen. Between the Jets and Vengeance, the 19-year-old Oxford native collected two goals and 11 points in 32 games.

Bessey, a 16-year-old from Howell, had four assists in 24 games with Metro in 2012-13. The Jets acquire a third-round pick in the draft in exchange for the Howell native.

The NA3HL Draft is scheduled for Tuesday, June 11.
