After acquiring his junior ‘A’ rights back in December in a trade with the SJHL’s Battlefords North Stars, the Salmon Arm SilverBacks moved 18-year-old defenceman Connor Sutton to the Okotoks Oilers of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for future considerations at today’s trade deadline.
Sutton, who was with the Lethbridge Hurricanes, was released by the WHL club and is set to join Okotoks following today’s trade. The deal hasn’t been announced by Salmon Arm due to the BCHL’s embargo on trade announcements until tomorrow morning at 10, but it is posted under “Transactions” on the AJHL’s website.
