Fernie Makes 2 Trades

A couple of moves to report on by the Fernie Ghostriders.

They traded forwards Darrell Boldon and Matt MacDonald to the Columbia Valley Rockies to finish an earlier deal. MacDonald is headed to Invermere as the future considerations that moved Boldon from the Rockies to the 'Riders in December while Boldon's rights have been sent back to the Rockies as well. Boldon had 6 points (4-2) in the playoffs while MacDonald chipped in with a goal and an assist. The two Calgary natives will be overagers next season.

Fernie wasn't done there. They shipped Zach Fridella to the VIJHL's Kerry Park Islanders for 1991-born forward Cole Peterson. Peterson finished 4th in the Vancouver Island circuit in scoring in 2009-10 notching 65 points (26-39) in just 40 games. Peterson should bring some offence to a Ghostrider club looking to bulk up for the 2011 Cyclone Taylor Cup.

Speaking of the provincial championships, the 2010 Cyclone Taylor Cup is just getting underway in Parksville at the time I'm writing this, with the Revelstoke Grizzlies taking on the VIJHL champion Peninsula Panthers. Midway's Brent Lucente, a former Rebel and Border Bruin, finished fifth in Panthers scoring this season with 43 points. The host Oceanside Generals and the PIJHL champion Aldergrove Kodiaks are the two other teams taking part, with the winner moving on to the Keystone Cup, being hosted this year by the Kamloops Storm.
