The Flin Flon Bombers are pleased to announce the acquisition of 1998 born forward Will Middleton (Beausejour, MB) from the Lloyminster Bobcats of the AJHL for future considerations.
Middleton played in 48 games with the Bobcats last season finishing with 7 points (5g, 2a) and 12 penalty minutes in his rookie campaign.
“We’re really happy to get Will from Lloyminster,” said Head Coach and General Manager Mike Reagan. “He’s a big body that put up good numbers in AAA midget. We lost some size and scoring which he could potentially help in both areas.”
Middleton suited up for the Eastman Selects of the Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League where he 70 points (32g, 28a) in 78 games over two seasons including 52 points (23g, 29a) in 44 games in his final AAA Midget season.
“Sometimes a change of scenery and a fresh start is all someone needs” added Reagan. “After the numbers he put up in midget, we think that’s all Will needs.”
