Wayway acquires Gross; Martynuik in Dec 1st Trades

The Wayway Wolverines were pretty busy as the first roster deadline hits at midnight tonight (Tues).

First off the Wolverines sent 20 year old F Robert Briem to the Steinbach Pistons (MJHL) for future considerations.

The 20 year old product had 48 goals, 48 assists for 96 points in 170 career games as a Wolverine.

The Wolverines were then involved in a 3-team trade with a couple teams from the SJHL.


Wayway acquired 19 year old forward Landon Gross (pictured above right) from the Flin Flon Bombers in exchange for 18 year old forward Rylee Zimmer (pictured above right).

Gross, a Pincher Creek, AB native has put together a pretty productive season so far scoring 16 goals, and 9 assists for 25 points in 25 games with the Klippers.

Meanwhile the Russell MB product in Zimmer had 12 points (1g, 11a) in 14 games.  Last year he had 36 points (10g, 26a) in 34 games which was good enough to make him a finalist for the MJHL Rookie of the Year.

The other trade the Wolverines were involved in was them picking 18 year old goaltender Troy Martynuik (pictured above) from the AJHL's Brooks Bandits for future considerations.

The Winnipeg MB product, who was dealt to Bandits earlier this year by the Dauphin Kings had a 1-1 record for Brooks with a 2.50GAA & a 0.913 SV%


In the Wolverines' third trade of the day, the Wolverines dealt 19 year old G Brandon Holtby to the Dauphin Kings for future considerations.

The Regina product had a 2-9 record with the Wolverines this season with a 3.83GAA & 0.895 SV%
