The honours keep rolling in for Yorkton Terrier F Clarke Breitkreuz. The 18-year-old from Springside will be in Winkler December 7th to 9th for the CJHL Prospects Games.
Breitkreuz also won a silver medal for Team Canada West at the World Junior 'A' Challenge a month ago.
The Prospects roster was a little overshadowed by "cut-down day." Unfortunately the only move involving our 4 local teams I could report as of now (10:45 PM) was the Melville Millionaires trading the rights to former Lethbridge Hurricane and Kamloops Blazer goalie Justin Leclerc to La Ronge (info below). I was in contact with all 4 GM's at least a couple times each throughout the day, and I'm sure other moves will be announced.
There is a move pending (waivers) between two of our four local teams, and it can be released at noon on Wednesday. It involves a veteran defenseman for futures.
SJHL.ca also reports the Millionaires have traded a veteran goalie to Trenton. You can probably do the math and figure out who that is.
The Estevan Bruins were busy, making major player-for-player deals with Flin Flon, and their rivals from Weyburn. The biggest deal so far this season saw the Bruins ship Brody Haygarth (29-13-14-27) to the Bombers for Devin Mitzner (28-23-15-38). The Highway 39 deal saw 20 D Davis Brown go to Weyburn for 19 F Kyle Johnson. Johnson scored 2 goals in his Bruins' debut in a 7-3 win over Notre Dame Tuesday night.
Kindersley traded 20 G Josh Baker to Dryden (SIJHL) for futures.
Melfort and Portage exchanged goalies. Alex Christiansen to the Mustangs, Jordan Washburn to the Terriers (MJHL).
Battleford lost F Brett Miller to Chilliwack (WHL). So THAT'S what Bruins' Coach/GM Marc Habshied was doing in Battleford Tuesday night! Stars acquired 20 F David Lawerence from Dauphin. It's the 3rd SJHL Bauer Conference team for Lawerence (La Ronge, Flin Flon)... and his 6th team overall in the last year and a bit, having also worn three MJHL jersies (OCN, Winkler, Dauphin).
Wayway Coach/GM Barry Butler told me this morning he expected to have 20 G Jayme Janzen moved by day's end. No word yet. Janzen wasn't on the game sheet again, as Deszi Wiens played, and Carey Dyck backed up as the Wolves fell 6-3 to Winkler on home ice.
Also nothing from Yorkton yet, and whether or not 3 goalies are carded.
No doubt more names and deals will be announced Wednesday.
Players have to be down to a maximum of 25 cards December 1st, and need to have less than that in order to make moves between now and the January 10th trade deadline.
