The Caps made six transactions in an attempt to finalize their roster for what is expected to be a long playoff run in the MHL (Maritime Junior Hockey League) leading up to the 2013 RBC Cup. The Caps are the host team for the Canadian junior A hockey championship in Summerside from May 11 to 19.

Here is a list of the Capitals’ moves on Thursday:

-- Acquired 18-year-old defenceman Michael Crocock from the Pembroke Lumber Kings of the Central Junior A Hockey League for future considerations.

-- Signed free-agent goaltender Kevin Bailie, 21, who put up impressive numbers in the first half of the season with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

-- Acquired right-winger Luke Warner from the Bridgewater Lumberjacks of the MHL (Maritime Junior Hockey League) for a third-round selection in this year’s draft and future considerations.

-- Acquired left-winger JP Harvey from the MHL’s Metro Shipbuilders in exchange for forward Justin Thomas and future considerations.

-- Acquired defenceman Mackenzie Braid from the Sudbury Wolves of the OHL for future considerations.

-- Traded defenceman Dale Deon to the Whitecourt Wolverines of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for future considerations.

    To Tim- Really easy to see why. Case of the 20 year olds. CAN ONLY HAVE SO MANY. Yes Dion was a great skater but he was the only defenceman who could have 3 points and be -4. He is sometimes defensively irresponsible. Its not an easy decision to cut or trade essentially kids so Im sure a lot of time and thought went into these. Thomas was great as well but extremely inconsistent. I cant wait to check out this new Tendy!!!!!!!! GO CAPS GO

    Can't believe they traded Deon and Thomas. Deon was such an awesome skater to watch. Could move through the whole other line without getting hit.
