SUSPENSION: The Saskachtwan Junior Hockey League announced today that 1994 born forward Brett Boehm (Martinsville, SK) has been suspended by the league for 3 games.
The suspension stems from a Major penalty Boehm received during the November 26th game against the Battlefords North Stars for Checking From Behind. Boehm will sit out tonight’s game against the Melfort Mustangs, and a pair of games, one Saturday November 30th and Friday December 6th, both when the team hosts the Melville Millionaires.
Boehm is eligible to return to the lineup on Saturday December 7th when the Estevan Bruins are in town.
TRADES: As previously stated, the Flin Flon Bombers acquired 1994 born forward Peter Poulin-Roy (Val-d’Or, QC) from the Abitibi Eskimos of the NOJHL in exchange for 1993 born forward Landon Hiebert.
While Poulin-Roy was born in Quebec, he played his minor hockey in Sudbury, ON, including three seasons with the Sudbury Nickel Capital Wolves in which he helped guide the team to a trip to the Telus Cup.
Last year with the Eskimos, Poulin-Roy had 42 points (16g, 26a) and 71 penalty minutes in 35 games. He also has 11 games of OHL experience with the Sudbury Wolves.
The team has also traded 1993 born forward Cole McCaig to the Waywayseecappo Wolverines of the MJHL in exchange for future considerations. McCaig had four points (2g, 2a) and 37 penalty minutes in 21 games this season with the Bombers. Overall he had 30 points (12g, 18a) in 123 games.
Head Coach and General Manager Mike Reagan then flipped the futures from the McCaig deal to the Drumheller Dragons of the AJHL in exchange for 1993 born forward Sam Williams (Winnipeg, MB).
Williams is no stranger to the SJHL, he played parts of three seasons with the Weyburn Red Wings, most recently this year where he had 12 points (5g, 7a) in 15 games. He has 59 points (23g, 36a) in 85 games with the Red Wings before being dealt to the Dragons.
In 5 games with Drumheller, Williams had 2 points (1g, 1a)
“We needed offense,” said Reagan. “We feel that we went out and acquired two guys to help with that.”
