Bobcats trade Spencer Johnstone to Calgary Mustangs

The Lloydminster Bobcats made a trade Friday afternoon, sending 19 year old defenseman Spencer Johnstone to the Calgary Mustangs in exchange for future considerations.

The deal will see future considerations coming the way of the Bobcats. It is anticipated that the Bobcats will add a future defenseman as a result of the transaction with the Mustangs.

The '94-born Spencer Johnstone who is from Calgary, Alberta returns to where he played his Midget AAA. He joined the Bobcats as a rookie in 2012/13 where he collected 3 goals, 8 assists and 84 penalty minutes in 56 games played.

This season Johnstone had 2 goals, 3 assists, with 33 penalty minutes in 21 games played.

GM/Coach Garry VanHereweghe had this to say about the trade, “Spencer has been a quality member of the Bobcats both on and off the ice, and will be missed. This is a decision that was made in the best interests of Spencer and his family, by allowing Spencer to return home and play in his home city, and be with his family.”

The Bobcats organization would like to thank Spencer Johnstone for his contributions to our organization, and wish him the best of luck in his future.
