The Western Bulldogs have facilitated a trade with Collingwood, receiving pick number 43 in the upcoming 2021 NAB AFL Draft in exchange for midfielder Patrick Lipinski.
Lipinski played 56 games in the red, white and blue since arriving with pick 28 in the 2016 national draft.
He managed 11 senior matches this season – including two as the unused medical substitute.
Bulldogs’ General Manager of List Management and Football Projects, Sam Power, thanked the 23-year-old for his services.
“We thank Pat for his contribution to the Club over the past five seasons, and we’ve enjoyed having him as part of our program,” Power said.
“We wish him all the best for his future as he continues his football at Collingwood.”
The Bulldogs now hold selections 23, 43, 44, 45, 52 and 93 in the 2021 NAB AFL Draft, which is set to be held on November 24 and 25.
