Sydney – The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles have acquired 17-year-old defenseman Loïk Léveillé from the Chicoutimi Saguenéens in exchange for a 2016 first round pick. The draft pick was one of three first round picks that Cape Breton received from Chicoutimi in September in a deal that saw the Screaming Eagles trade 2013 first overall pick Nicolas Roy to the Saguenéens.
Loïk Léveillé (1996-09-25) was drafted by the Baie Comeau Drakkar 5th overall in the 2012 QMJHL Entry Draft and was traded to Chicoutimi in January 2013. The 5’11”, 212lb native of St-Jérôme, Quebec has 8 goals, 19 assists and 45 penalty minutes in 88 career QMJHL games.
The mid-season trade period closes on January 7th, 2014 at 12 noon.
