Shortreed back in Lakers’ fold
The Fort Frances Lakers have brought a familiar face back to their lineup after acquiring Jameson Shortreed from the Drumheller Dragons of the AJHL for a player development fee.
Shortreed, who hails from Emo, previously suited up for the Lakers from 2009-2011, where he compiled a 20-33-3-3 record and 4.00 GAA.
As a result of the deal, the Lakers also parted ways with goalie Dustin Stevens, who had a 0-2-0 record and a 4.09 GAA in a back-up role to starter Tanner Hamilton.
The 19-year-old Shortreed had played in five games for the Dragons prior to yesterday’s trade, where he had a 3.97 GAA and .870 save percentage.
Last season, Shortreed plied his trade with the NAHL’s Alexandria Blizzard, where he had a 7-5-2-1 mark and a 3.14 GAA.
The Lakers are in action here tonight at 7:30 p.m., when they welcome the Minnesota Iron Rangers to town.
