The Nanaimo Clippers, who many expected to be busy at today's trade deadline, made at least one confirmed move. As was first reported by Fort McMurray play-by-play man Tyler King on Twitter (@tyler_king), the Clippers have acquired 20-year-old defenceman Brock Maschmeyer from the Oil Barons for 18-year-old forward Kevin Miller and future considerations.
There are many other rumours out there concerning Nanaimo, but until I hear something confirmed, I won't post it here on the blog. As for this move, it adds a huge piece to the Clippers blueline as Maschmeyer has been runner-up for AJHL Defenceman of the Year for the past two seasons.
