It's cutdown day in junior hockey as teams try to free up a few cards. Each team must be down to 25 cards but most teams will want to keep a card or two open so that they can make a move at the January 10th deadline.
The biggest move of the day involves the SJHL's 2nd leading scorer.
F Devin Mitzner ('90) has been traded from the Bombers to the Bruins for F Brody Haygarth ('90). Mitzner has put up 38 points (23g 15a) thus far while Haygarth has put up 27 points (13g 14a).
I don't really understand this deal from the Bombers perspective. They are the top team in the Bauer Conference and, before this trade, boasted the leagues top 2 leading scorers. Did Mitzner not like playing or living in Flin Flon? We'll see if something comes out in the coming days.
