The Winkler Flyers have acquired veteran F Jagger Thomas (94) and future considerations from the Swan Valley Stampeders (MJHL) for future considerations. The Orange and Black picked up the 6’1”, 192lbs winger with the January 10th trading deadline only days away.
In 35 games played with the Stampeders this season, the Boissevain, Manitoba native recorded 15 points (2 goals – 13 assists) to go along with 35 penalty minutes. In his three previous seasons in Swan Valley he recorded 66 points (23 goals – 43 assists) and 124 penalty minutes in 170 games played.
“He’s a hard working guy that can play against the other team’s top line.” Said Flyers Head Coach and General Manager Ken Pearson. He then went on to say that Thomas is also a great teammate and will be very good in the dressing room.
The trade brings the Flyers roster up to 22 players, and with F Nolan McGuire out with a long term injury, the Flyers have two more roster spots to fill before the January 10th trading deadline.
The Flyers would like to welcome Jagger and his family to the Winkler Flyers organization and look forward to seeing him on the ice in an Orange and Black uniform.
