I have received (as yet) no confirmation on this trade from the Smoke Eaters due mainly to the fact that I am away for the weekend. But I will say from a roster composition standpoint the move makes a bit of sense, as the Smokies currently have four over-age blueliners (Matthews, Wong, Sidhu, and McEwan) on their roster. Of note, Matthews, an Alaska native, is also draft property of the NAHL's Kenai River Brown Bears.
Stay tuned to the blog for any and all reaction over the next few days.
