The La Ronge Ice Wolves have traded 2004-born defenceman Kaycee Coyle to the Niverville Nighhawks (MJHL) in exchange for 2004-born forward Dayden Collier, a player development fee and future considerations.
“It’s a tough loss for our back end,” said Ice Wolves Head Coach/GM Kevin Kaminski. “Kaycee provided us with great defence, played physical and he possessed a great skill set to produce offensively.”
Coyle, a Winnipeg product, recorded 18 points and 94 penalty minutes in 32 games last season with La Ronge.
“Kaycee was also a great person off the ice, especially with the kids and in the community,” said Kaminski. “His presence will be missed. We want to thank Kaycee for all his contributions on and off the ice. We wish him nothing but success with his new team in Manitoba.”
Collier is entering his second season of junior hockey. The Medicine Hat, AB product split time last season with the Niverville Nighhawks (MJHL) and St. Malo Warriors (CRJHL). In 15 games with Niverville, he recorded three points.
Meantime, the Ice Wolves open training camp Sept. 5 in La Ronge.
