Lakers make moves


In comes two, out goes three more.

The tweaking of the Fort Frances Lakers’ roster continued yesterday with the announcement of two trades.

Forward Austin Petrie was acquired from the Richmond (Va.) Generals of the United States Premier Hockey League Elite for a player development fee.

Petrie, 19, is a St. Louis native who has five goals and 11 assists in 18 games this season.

He joins goalie Dakota Delbridge, who won his first start for the Lakers on Saturday against the Thief River Falls Norskies, as the two fresh faces on the roster.

Meanwhile, forward Oliver Alcock was dealt to the Surrey Knights of the Pacific International Junior Hockey League (B.C.) for a player development fee.

Alcock, an 18-year-old from White Rock, B.C., had just two goals in 16 games this season after coming here from the Langley Knights during the off-season.

As well, local defenceman Josh Gouin was released after getting a goal and two assists in 12 games his season.

Also let go was goalie Billy Gorn, who only played in three games with the Lakers this season because of two separate injuries.

Gorn hurt his groin in training camp and didn’t make his debut until Oct. 8 against the Minnesota Iron Rangers.

He started two-straight games, but then dislocated his shoulder in the second one Oct. 14 against the Thunder Bay North Stars.

The 20-year-old from Edmonton then was tagged for three goals in less than nine minutes in his return to action Nov. 1 against the Dryden GM Ice Dogs.

The Lakers—riding a five-game winning streak—are in Thunder Bay tomorrow night to face the North Stars.

Their next home game is this Friday at 7:30 p.m. versus Dryden.
