The Lloydminster Bobcats have announced the acquisition of a pair of players after the completion of two trades.
The Bobcats have traded ’97 forward Josh Giacomin to the Calgary Canucks in exchange for ’96 forward Zach McNeill and ’96 defenceman Greydon Robinson.
Subsequently, McNeill was moved along with ’97 defenceman Brendan Kallis to the Nipawin Hawks of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) in exchange for ’95 forward Kris Spriggs.
Robinson adds to an already deep pool of defencemen on the Bobcats roster, coming over from the Canucks after appearing in 24 games this season. The Calgary native has registered one goal and seven assists for eight points this year. In 24 games with the West Kelowna Warriors of the British Columbia Hockey League last season, Robinson produced at nearly half a point per game, with 10 points on the year.
In Spriggs, the Bobcats are adding an offensive threat who has registered 103 points in 125 games with the Hawks in the SJHL. This season, the Edmonton native has produced at over a point per game, with 14 goals and 11 assists for 25 points in 23 appearances.
Today’s moves come on the heels of a trade earlier this month, when ’96 forward Taylor Lotoski was moved to Nipawin in exchange for ’96 defenceman Stefan Wood.
The Bobcats would like to thank Josh Giacomin, Brendan Kallis, Taylor Lotoski, and their respective families for all their contributions to our organization, and wish all three players the best in the future.
