3 Trades Completed

The Storm Complete 3 Trades

The Grande Prairie Storm would like to announce the completion of 3 trades last week. First the Storm traded 19 year old forwards Devan Reed (Calgary, AB) and Michael Grant (Lethbridge, AB) to the Nipawin Hawks of the SJHL in return for 20 year old forward Zac McNeil (Calgary, AB). The second trade saw the Storm move 20 year old defense man Parker Wakaruk (Lethbridge, AB) to the Humboldt Broncos of the SJHL in return for future considerations. In the third trade the Storm acquired 19 year old defense man Bret Schwengler (Eau Claire, WI) from the Estevan Bruins of the SJHL.

Coach / GM Kevin Higo: “The Grande Prairie Storm would like to thank Devan, Michael, and Parker for their time and effort while with our organization. We wish them all the best with their new teams. After the season was over we looked at areas of the team that we felt we needed to improve from both recruiting and trades. One of the areas was we needed to be harder to play against and by adding Brett and Zac we have done that. Zac is a versatile forward that can play center or wing and is very physical. Last year he scored a combined 16 goals as well as over 200 mins in penalties. He is hard on the forecheck and when the game is over is not well liked by the opposition. Bret is a big hard to play against D-man that will provide a physical presence all over the ice. He comes from a successful high school program and also was a member of Team Wisconsin that won a USA National Championship. Both players styles are suited for the AJHL North Division and we look forward to them joining the Storm.”
