Flin Flon acquires offensively skilled forward Peter Poulin-Roy from the NOJHL in exchange for Landon Hiebert.

The Flin Flon Bombers currently sit in second in the Sherwood Division and seventh overall in the entire SJHL.  From there they have the league’s best goals against allowing only 46 goals through 21 games played, but they are 10th in the league in goals for, averaging only 2.57 goals for.  With that the team made a deal to hopefully bolster that.

The Flin Flon Bombers have acquired 1994 born forward Peter Poulin-Roy from the Abitibi Eskimos of the NOJHL in exchange for 1993 born forward Landon Hiebert.

Poulin-Roy (Val-d’Or, QC) is a 5’11, 190 pound product of the Sudbury Minor Hockey where he played for the Nickel Capital Wolves for three seasons, one of which included a trip to the Telus Cup.  This is where Head Coach and General Manager Mike Reagan first got a glimpse of the skilled forward.

“I’ve been trying to get this guy for two seasons now,” said Reagan

Poulin-Roy had 42 points (16g, 26a) last year with the Eskimos to go along with 71 penalty minutes in 35 games.  He also has 11 games of OHL experience with the Sudbury Wolves, picking up a goal in his latest stint which was last year when he played four games.

“We feel he’s going to be a top 3 guy for us,” commented Reagan.   “We think he’s going to help with our offensive problems.

Hiebert played in 100 games of the Bombers since 2011 finishing up with 34 points (18g, 16a).  This season he played in 13 games picking up one goal.

“It’s always tough to give a player away, especially a guy like Landon,” said Reagan, “we wish Landon lots of luck and thank him for his two and half years in Flin Flon.”

The Bombers are in action tonight when they face the Kindersley Klippers in Kindersley.
