Bombers Get Kauk

The Flin Flon Bombers have aquired 20 year old defenseman Tyler Kauk from the Estevan Bruins for one of their prospects  96 d-man Conner Vermulin who played last season for the Beardy's Blackhawks of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League.

Mike Reagan feels Tyler will be a great addition for the Bombers who dealt 20 year old d-man Dallen Hall to Drayton Valley of the AJHL yesterday.

Kauk is an elite defenceman in this league and a nice addition to the power play with his great shot and vision.

Kauk had 22 points in 51 regular season games last year and added 4 points in the playoffs.

The Bombers look to be solid on the back end again this season with the addition of Kauk who will be joining returning Bomber d-men Hounsell, Clark, Chartrand and Zelinski.

Bombers Are Busy

The Flin Flon Bombers have confirmed that they have traded 20 year old defenseman Dallen Hall to Drayton Valley of the AJHL.

Drayton Valley is where former Bomber Assistant Coach Michael George has taken a job as Associate Coach and Assistant General Manager.

Mike Reagan made the announcement on CFAR-590 today and said this trade was made to move Dallen closer to home for family reasons.

Dallen was a great player and person both off and on the ice and will be missed by the entire organization and The Bombers wish him well.

Flin Flon will get 94 forward Parker Evans Campbell in return. He had 25 points as a rookie last season.

Reagan also mentioned that they are close to working out another deal within the league to bring in a d-man to replace Hall. One of the players that Mike would like to move is out of the country, and as soon as he is notified the trade will be made.

The deadline for accepting applications for the new assistant coach will be tomorrow, with an announcement expected by August the 1st.
