Arguably the biggest trade (thus far) ahead of the December 1st CJHL card deadline went down today between the Trail Smoke Eaters and Cowichan Valley Capitals.
It sees the Smokies send 19-year-old defenseman Valik Chichkin and future considerations to Cowichan for 19-year-old forward Mitch Ball and 18-year-old defenseman Rylan Ball.
For Trail, the trade is the fifth this week which sees the Smoke Eaters add three new players and move out five, while also signing one from junior B (18-year-old defenseman Riley Ostoforoff).
To Trail Smoke Eaters:
F Mitch Ball (94) D Rylan Ball (95) To Cowichan Valley Capitals:
D Valik Chichkin (94) + Future Considerations
