Beach Now a Hurricane
Lethbridge Hurricanes General Manager, Roy Stasiuk, announced this afternoon the Canes have traded forward Dan Iwanski and defenseman Alex Theriau; along with a 1st round draft pick in the 2009 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft to the Everett Silvertips in exchange for 89-born defenseman Mike Alexander and 2008 NHL first round draft pick Kyle Beach.
If this is the going rate for a top-end player this year than the sellers are going to have a hayday! This is a HUGE price to pay in my opinion. Iwanski and Theriau are two really good young players... then you add a 1st round bantam pick.
Everett must be smiling. Great move Doug Soetaert.
