TWolves status quo a few hours before deadline
No significant roster moves reported by BCHL squad by 2 p.m. yesterday, four hours before BCHLs 6 p.m. trade deadline
The TimberWolves roster may be one of the least altered as a result of the BCHLs trading deadline.
Reached by phone at 2 p.m. yesterday, TimberWolves marketing manager Brad Morgan had no trades to report. In a conversation on Tuesday, TimberWolves coach/GM Steve Carpenter said hed only make changes prior to yesterdays 6 p.m. deadline if they made sense.
Youre always looking for changes, he said. Id make the changes if the right opportunity comes along.
Carpenter has taken a somewhat conservative approach. He said if anything, hed make a deal to move one of his top players for a future consideration.
To add another defenceman wouldnt be a bad thing, he noted.
A day before the trading deadline, it was the TimberWolves rivals in Quesnel who were swinging the most deals, making three transactions on Tuesday. They began by transferring the playing rights of forward Lee Pagee to the Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for future considerations. They then took part in a blockbuster deal with the Powell River Kings, sending forwards Chad Dunlop and Matt Weist to the Kings in exchange for defenceman Anthony Gorenszach. They finished their day by transferring Gorenszachs playing rights to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.
Another significant deal on Monday saw former TimberWolf Jason Wright join the Merritt Centennials. In exchange, forward John Bokla was sent to the Portage Terriers of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.
With a full day to make a deal, Carpenter was keeping his eyes open.
Im not particularly looking for a specific spot.
