Blades beef up for Memorial Cup

The Saskatoon Blades and the Brandon Wheat Kings were the biggest players before an otherwise quiet Western Hockey League trade deadline, taking part in six of Thursday’s eight swaps.

The Blades made four deals, giving away two first-round WHL Bantam Draft picks. Before sending this year’s first-round choice to the Wheat Kings for Mike Ferland, they shipped their 2015 first-rounder and a fifth-round choice this year to the Spokane Chiefs for forward Collin Valcourt. Valcourt, 19, had 13 goals, 23 points and 70 penalty minutes in 41 games with the Chiefs.

The Blades made room for Ferland by dealing overage forward Adam Kambeitz to the Seattle Thunderbirds for a 2013 third-round pick and added forward Erik Benoit, 19, from the Kootenay Ice, for a 2013 fourth-round pick.

In Thursday’s other moves:

• The Regina Pats traded forward Colten Mayor, 19, to the Calgary Hitmen for forward Carson Samoridny, 18, and a fourth-round selection this year.

• The Moose Jaw Warriors sent forward Andrew Johnson, 18, to the Thunderbirds for a fourth-round pick in this year’s draft.
