The MJHL's Swan Valley Stampeders' have added some experience to the forward unit on Wednesday after completing a trade with the Prince George Spruce Kings (BCHL).
The Stampeders' acquired 20 year old F Haydn Delorme from the Spruce Kings in exchange for future considerations.
Stamps' Head Coach/GM Barry Wolff says they are excited to get the Port Moody, BC product to Swan River.
"He's got a pro shot which I'm really excited about him especially for the power play we needed to add some offense and he's a kid I'm familiar with I coached him back in Coquitlam and he's got a ton of experience you know with a variety of different teams & coaches and he's gonna bring all that experience in our locker room."
Delorme, who has spent some time as well with the Western Hockey League's Portland Winterhawks, suited up in 14 games for the Spruce Kings during the 2019/20 campaign, notching four goals and adding two assists for 6 points.
As we itch closer to what is hoping to be the start of the 2020/21 Manitoba Junior Hockey League, Wolff admits COVID-19 has put a little hamper on their off-season but there might be a little light at the end of the tunnel.
"We're finally getting closer to getting some answers on when we can get started with you know training camp and and our regular season season so you know the sooner we get that solidified it's gonna make life a lot easier."
The Stampeders are preparing for the upcoming Stamps' Camp Hockey School and Conditioning Camp that'll run August 24th to 28th at the Centennial Arena as well as their Texas Scramble Golf tournament that'll take place on September 12th in Swan River.
