The Power Dodge Estevan Bruins have executed multiple roster moves over the past week ahead of the first of two roster deadlines during the regular season.
The Bruins have traded 1999-born goaltender Jake Anthony to the Dryden GM Ice Dogs (SIJHL) for future considerations.
The Bruins have also traded 2000-born forward Tom Sweeney to the Neepawa Natives (MJHL) for future considerations.
Earlier in November, the Bruins parted ways with 1999-born forward Jerzy Martin and 2000-born forward George Cathers who have decided to pursue life outside of hockey.
The Bruins thank all four players for their contributions to the club and wish them the best in the future.
The Bruins now sit with 22 players on their current roster, with three cards open to add players before January 10th. After that date however, the team will finalize their 23-man roster.
The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL), like all other Junior A hockey leagues in Canada, requires teams to be down to a maximum of 25 players by December 1st. If a team is below 25 players, the extra spots (known as cards) can be filled by adding players until January 10th.
The January 10th deadline requires teams to have a maximum of 23 players on its roster, and no further moves to the roster can be made after this date for the remainder of the season/playoffs. The lone exception allows teams to call up players (known as AP’s) from lower levels for the remainder of the season/playoffs.
