Legionnaires Complete Trade

january 11, 2015

By Dan McCaffery

The Sarnia Legionnaires obtained St. Marys Lincolns captain Mitch Read right at the trade deadline.

General manager Bob Williamson announced Sunday the local Jr. 'B' hockey club had acquired the veteran defenceman in a straight cash deal.

Read is a 19-year-old who stands 5'11 and weighs in at 170 pounds. He had five goals and seven assists while playing for the last place Lincs this season.

"He'll be in our top four (as far as rearguards go), he's going to be a big addition, Williamson said.

Read's older brother, Matt, plays for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League. Like Mitch, he played Western Jr. 'B' hockey before turning pro.

Read was the third player acquired by the Legionnaires in the days leading up to the trade deadline, which came Saturday at midnight. The other two were all-star goalie Andrew Masters, also of St. Marys, and big rearguard Connor Andersen of the Brampton Bombers. All three were obtained for cash.

Williamson also announced Sarnia has traded goalie Hunter Johnson to the Welland Canadians for cash.
