Tiger fans, come January,will be cheering for a team that is
considerably different from the one that sent Woodstock home unsatisfied
Friday evening. To begin with, first liner,
Andrew Meredith,the team’s leading point-getter to date, has been
called up to the Bathurst Titan for the rest of the season. He, along
with line mates Francis Bernier and Robert Pelletier, have accounted for
over 30% of Campbellton’s offense. Also impacting the team is the news
that Grant West has been traded to Truro for three players plus future
considerations. Coming to the Tigers will be twenty year old forward
Mike Richard, and nineteen year old defenseman, Brendon McMartin. Also
part of the package was Stephen LeDrew, a seventeen year old midget
player presently in St. John’s, Nfld. who will be available next year.
Again with an eye to building for the future, twenty year old Kevin
Woodyatt was traded to Elliot Lake Bobcats of the Northern Ontario Jr.
League for eighteen year old defenseman Mitch Blanchard. The Tiger
organization wishes to thank these departing players for their
contributions to the team and to wish them well in their future
endeavors, both on and off the ice.
