The Flin Flon Bombers Spring Camp and AGM were both held in the past couple of weeks which signify the end of the 2013-14 SJHL season, so Flin Flon Bombers Head Coach and General Manager started to build for next years team finalizing trades from last season's SJHL Trade Deadline.
After picking up big defenseman Braden Lacoursiere two weeks ago from the Battlefords North Stars to finish the Cam Blair deal, Reagan capped off a couple of more trades made at the deadline. The first one was picking up 1994 born forward Tanner Lomsnes (Red Deer, AB) from the Dauphin Kings who was owed from the Dillian McCombie trade.
Lomsnes, (6'4, 201 pounds) brings with him not only a big frame, but some offensive upside. He picked up 38 points (18g, 20a) in 36 games last season, along with some valuable experience as he played on the biggest stage in Junior A hockey, playing in both the Western Canada Cup and the RBC Cup.
"Tanner's a guy that has been on our radar for a long time," said Reagan. "We spoted Tanner a few year back when he was playing AAA Midget in Alberta but he was property of another team in the league. We're ecstatic when we could get him for Pickle (McCombie)."
The Red Deer native had 5 points (2g, 3a) during the WCC helping the host Kings to a second place finish and a buy into the RBC. He picked up one assist in the National Championship, as Dauphin was knocked out in the Semi-Finals.
"He's a guy that does all the little things right," added Reagan. "He's good in the corners, goes to the net well and very capable of being a point per game guy in the SJHL."
Along with the offensive upside, Reagan see's more in Lomsnes.
"No doubt adding his WCC and RBC experience is valuable, but he has some leadership qualities that will help our team out immensley."
Also coming back is the CJHL playing rights to local product Dillan McCombie. He's eligible to come back to Flin Flon and play his final year of junior hockey.
