Kings trade Lepine to Miramichi for future considerations


The Powell River Kings have acquired future considerations from the Miramichi Timberwolves of the Maritime Hockey League for 2001-born defenseman Olivier Lépine.

It’s the third time since June that the Montreal product had his junior A rights moved.

First, Penticton picked up Lépine and 2001-born forward Ryan Upson from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s Notre Dame Hounds for 2001-born forward Liam Noble and 2002-born defenseman Carson Hemenway on June 23.

Then that same day, the Vees flipped Lépine and future considerations to Powell River for 2001-born defenseman Ben Wozney.

Lépine had six goals and 20 points in 44 games as a rookie with the Hounds last season.
