http://mdivadomestica.com/tag/cardamom/ Second AJHLer commits to Long Island University
Bonnyville Pontiacs forward Daine Dubois (1999) found a home for the fall by joining Brooks Bandits defenceman Jordan Di Ciccio (1999) at Long Island University – the newest NCAA Division I program.
Dubois missed only one regular season game for the Pontiacs in his two years with the organization. They acquired him back in 2018 from the Cowichan Valley Capitals (BCHL) in exchange of Austin Chorney (2000) who never suited up for them.
After those 117 games, Dubois really left his stamp on the organization becoming a reliable two-way forward and helped guide the team to one of their best seasons ever in 2019. He scored 47 goals and 116 points during his time and also 8 points in the 13 postseason games.
Not a bad piece of business considering the guy they traded for him never stepped on the R.J. Lalonde ice.
my link Pontiacs send two former Mustangs back south
Last season, Rick Swan and his team made two separate deals with the Drumheller Dragons.
The first deal was for Bruce MacGregor (2001) who the Dragons had recently acquired from the Spruce Grove Saints. MacGregor went onto play 40 games scoring 10 goals and 27 points.
In the second deal which they made at the trade deadline, the Pontiacs acquire UMass-Lowell commit Roc Truman (2001). Unfortunately, in his first game in a Pontiacs uniform, Truman suffered a serious lower body which forced him to be sidelined for the remainder of the season. He did, however, pick up an assist in that game against Sherwood Park.
It was revealed today that defencemen Cayden Shmyr (2000) and forward Andres Bridgewater (2000) were heading the other way.
Shmyr dressed in 45 games for Bonnyville after signing as a free agent from the Calgary Mustangs. He scored eight points in his lone year with the Yaks.
Bridgewater was also only with the Pontiacs temporarily. He was brought in midseason from Cowichan Valley to provide more depth; however, he struggled to adapt back to the AJHL style and scoring only 2 goals in 20 games.
Heading into next season, Drumheller now has only one available 20-year-old spot left. They’ll have Aiden Yakemchuk, Jeremie Roy, and now Shmyr will be their blueliners. Then, Bridgewater will join Shane Ott in the forward group.
why not check here Wolverines add and subtract
The Whitecourt Wolverines brought in former AJHL champion Orca Wiesblatt from the Portage Terriers.
Wiesblatt spent his first season and a half with the Brooks Bandits before jumping up to the WHL with the Calgary Hitmen. He made a brief return to the Bandits in 2018 but was later moved to Manitoba to join the Terriers. He played 16 games for the Terriers before giving the WHL another shot where he had a lot more success. In his second attempt at major junior, Wiesblatt dressed in 64 games for the Hitmen scoring 20 goals and 57 points.
After such a successful season with the Hitmen, Wiesblatt will likely spend his final year of junior eligibility in the WHL. However, no decision has been announced yet.
It was the Portage Terriers that released this trade. In their press release, the deal was stated as “Orca Wiesblatt’s (00) CJHL rights have been sent to the Whitecourt Wolverines of the AJHL for F Nolan Doell (01) who was moved to acquire F Jacob Piller (00).”

He played in 11 games for the Wolverines scoring one goal and one assist.

The Brooks Bandits announced that Daryk Dube-Plouffe (2002) had been acquired today. He joins the Bandits as part of the completion of the Marc-Antonie Benoit (1999) deal which sent him to the Princeville Titans last season.
Dube-Plouffe is a forward who played in 15 games for the Titans last season scoring two goals and five points. He also spent a brief time in the QMJHL with the Quebec Ramparts dressing in three games.
He also played in 22 games for the College Charles-Lemoyne Riverains in the Quebec Midget AAA league last season scoring 20 points.

The Canmore Eagles acquired Carter Myrol (2002) today completing their deal with the Grande Prairie Storm from January 8th, 2020.
The original deal saw Max Giangualano (2000) and Carter Coles (2000) head to Northern Alberta and Lukas Jirousek (2000) and Zachary Cunningham (2001) join the mountain town team.
Now, Myrol joins his two former teammates in Canmore.
Myrol just finished his rookie season where he dressed in 40 games scoring 7 goals and 11 points.
