Generals and Icehawks swap forwards

The Flint Generals announced today that they have completed a trade with the Port Huron Icehawks, sending forward Jeff Zehr to the Icehawks in exchange for veteran forward Greg Bullock.

The 28-year-old Zehr, formerly a second-round pick of the New York Islanders in 1997, collected 30 goals and added 35 assists for 65 points and 93 penalty minutes in 64 games for the Generals last season. Bullock had a strong season in Port Huron with 18 goals and 51 assists for 69 points and 70 penalty minutes in 74 games.

“I think it is a great trade for both teams,” said Generals head coach Kevin Kerr. “Port Huron has something they have been wanting, which is a a scoring forward, and we wanted a solid one or two centerman and it’s great for both teams.

“Greg Bullock will add veteran leadership to our team and has played great throughout his career. He can play in all situations from power play to four on four.”

Bullock, a 34-year-old native of Cambridge, Ontario, has put up some solid numbers whereever he has played. Generals’ fans will remember the 5-foot-11, 180-pounder when he played for the Motor City Mechanics of the UHL. He posted 18 goals and added 40 assists for 58 points and 81 penalty minutes in 59 games during that 2005-2006 season.

Bullock has also spent time in the IHL with the former San Francisco Spiders, Grand Rapids Griffins, Kansas City Blades and the Michigan K-Wings. In 54 career games, Bullock has picked up 30 goals and 59 assists and 89 points and 144 penalty minutes.
