In another roster deadline move, the Winkler Flyers have added D Nathan Peabody (96) and G Troy Martyniuk (97) from the Waywayseecappo Wolverines for the list rights to D Aiden Woodley (99) and future considerations.
Peabody is a 6’2”, 181lbs defenseman from Grand Forks, North Dakota who recorded two goals and 27 penalty minutes in four games played with Wayway this season. The 20 year old split time last year between the Wolverines and the Estevan Bruins (SJHL) and had 11 points (1 goal – 10 assists) and 74 penalty minutes.
“Nathan brings a big frame and also skates and shoots well and will provide depth and experience to our blueline” said Flyers Head Coach and General Manager Ken Pearson.
Martyniuk is a 5’10”, 180lbs goaltender from Winnipeg. The 19 year old spent the past two seasons with the Dauphin Kings, Brooks Bandits (AJHL) and Waywayseecappo. Last season, Martyniuk had a 6-11 record with a .900 save % and 3.45 GAA with the Wolverines and will benefit from a strong Flyers’ defense corps.
“Troy will be a good one-two punch with (Cole) Weaver and the competition will make both of them better. It really helps solidify our goaltending. He brings good experience having played in the Western Canada Cup as an under aged player with Dauphin back in 2014” said Pearson.
The Flyers would like to welcome Nathan, Troy and their families to the Flyers organization and look forward to seeing them in Orange and Black uniforms this weekend.
