The PBCN Selects have traded the Hockey Canada playing rights to 2003 born Leon Natomagan to the Saskatoon Royals of the Prairie Junior Hockey League.

 

In Return the Selects receive Player Development Fees

 

“Trading Leo wasn’t an easy decision, we add a few bucks to our player transaction’s fund that will hopefully allow us to add at this season’s deadline, but this deal was to allow a very good kid the opportunity to attend university in Saskatoon while playing hockey this season.” Commented GM Church

 

Natomagan scored 29 goals and added 31 assists last season, he wore an ”A” for the expansion club leading them to a semi final appearance. He’s leaving big shoes to fill in the teams top six forwards.

 

The PBCN Selects organization wishes him the best of luck going forward and Thanks Leon for his contributions to our very young franchise.
