The CJHL roster deadline is here, and today is the last day teams will be able to make trades and signings. The Richardson Pioneer Weyburn Red Wings, who are looking to add the right piece or two ahead of the push for the playoffs, announced one trade this morning.
They acquired 03-born defenceman Colin Doherty from the Amarillo Wranglers of the NAHL, in exchange for a PDF. Doherty has played 33 games this season, scoring two goals and adding eight assists.
"Colin is a good skating, strong young man that will immediately make us a better hockey team," said Red Wings head coach Cody Mapes of the move.
In the afternoon, another deal was announced for the Red Wings, as they moved 04-born forward Elijah Anderson. He was traded to the Battlefords North Stars in exchange for the rights to 04-born goaltender Justen Maric, who is currently with the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL, a player development fee, and future considerations.
Before the trade deadline was over, Weyburn made two other moves.
First, they acquired the rights to 06-born blueliner Simon Martin, who is currently skating with the Tisdale Trojans U18 AAA squad, from Humboldt for a player development fee. Then, they traded a player development fee to Fort McMurray for 04-born forward Sam Callahan. The day ended with the announcement 04-born defenceman Grady Sterling-Ponech had been traded to the Princeton Posse of the KIJHL for a player development fee.
