FULL LIST OF 2019 TRADES
Hawthorn: Sam Frost, pick No.42, pick No.61 and a future fourth round pick
Melbourne: Future second round pick and pick No.50
In its first trade of the period, Hawthorn received Melbourne defender Sam Frost.
Frost is an athletic and agile player who is expected to compliment the current Hawthorn defensive unit.
Arguably the most anticipated deal was the trading in of GWS forward Jonathon Patton.
Despite three serious knee injuries, the 26-year-old has shown that he is capable of huge goal hauls and contested marks.
Hawthorn: Jonathon Patton
GWS: Future fourth round pick
The Hawks’ last deal was the trading out of ruckman Marc Pittonet.
Pittonet had been at the Hawks since 2014, but had struggled to break into the senior side, managing just seven AFL games.
Hawthorn: Picks No.54 and No.63
Carlton: Marc Pittonet, pick No.61
