Local teams making moves

Since I was away on holidays some of our local teams have been making some moves ahead of their training camps in just under couple weeks.

The Yorkton Terriers traded local products 18 year olds Carson and McKenzie Welke to the Camrose Kodiaks (AJHL) in exchange for 19 year old F Slater Strong and a player development fee.

Carson had 25 goals, 36 assists for 61 points in 103 career games with the Terriers while brother McKenzie had 31 goals, 37 assists for 68 points in 108 games in a Terrier uniform.

Meanwhile Strong, who hails from Calgary AB had 3 goals 6 assists for 9 points in 34 games with the Kodiaks this season.

The Terriers then used the player development fee acquired from the Kodiaks and sent it to the Calgart Canucks (AJHL) for 18 year old forward Dalton Ossman.

The Calgary AB product in his 2nd season with the Canucks last season had 7 goals, 11 assists for 18 points in 41 games.

The Melville Millionaires dealt 20 year old D Tyson Slater to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs (BCHL) for 19 year old F Ethan Kopyczyn and 18 year old defenceman Jake Wilhelm.

Slater was acquired by the Mils from Trail in the Brandon Wells trade earlier this summer. 

Kopyczyn played last year with the AJHL's Calgary Mustangs and in 56 games had 8 goals, 13 assists for 21 points. 

Meanwhile, Wilhelm (Victoria BC) was pointless in 34 games last season with the Bulldogs. 

The Mils also announced that forwards Jackson Nauss & Aaron Aragon and defenceman Jake Sutton will be playing south of the border and will not be returning this season 

The Swan Valley Stampeders have made a couple moves dealing 19 year old D Dane Bumstead to the English River Miners (SIJHL) and acquiring 20 year old F Tanner Garnham from the Fort Frances Lakers (SIJHL). 

Bumstead, a Winnipeg product was pointless in 30 games with the Stamps last season while Garnham (Portage La Prairie, MB) had 9 points in 46 games with the Lakers.
