North Stars make transactions

Press Release

The Battlefords North Stars are excited to announce that forward Nick Fountain has been reaquired for future considerations. Fountain started the 2013-13 season with the North Stars and had one assist in two games before being traded to the Winkler Flyers in the MJHL. He was later moved to the Abitibi Eskimos of the NOJHL. Fountain is a speedy forward and can be frustrating to play against. He had nine goals and eight assists in 24 games with the Eskimos during his first season of junior A hockey.

The Battlefords North Stars also traded 1993-born forward Brandon Long to the Drayton Valley Thunder of the AJHL for future considerations.

Long had 10 goals and 17 assists in 48 games for the North Stars last season. Long now has the opportunity to play closer to his hometown of Calgary and the team wishes him the best of luck the future.
