SUMMERSIDE – The Summerside Western Capitals and Yarmouth Mariners completed a trade in the MHL (Maritime Junior Hockey League) on Monday.
The Caps sent defenceman Connor Dea to Yarmouth in exchange for the MHL rights to forward Alex Gallant of Stratford and future considerations.
Dea was pointless and picked up 33 penalty minutes in six regular-season games with the Caps.
In 32 regular-season games with the Charlottetown Islanders in the New Brunswick/P.E.I. Major Midget Hockey League last season, Gallant had 38 points, including 17 goals. He has a goal and an assist in four regular-season contests this season.
