Jordan Thomson: Joins Dauphin

The Dauphin Kings continued their roster makeover at the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s trade deadline on Friday with a couple of big moves.

The Kings — the host team for this year’s Western Canada Cup — announced that Wawanesa native Jordan Thomson, a 17-year-old defenceman, will head to Dauphin after not reporting to the WHL’s Saskatoon Blades and being assigned to the Kings yesterday. Thomson, the fourth overall pick from the 2011 WHL bantam draft, was acquired by the Blades from the Kamloops Blazers, after he left the Blazers in December to return home, citing personal reasons. Thomson had seven assists in 20 WHL games.

Meanwhile, the Kings also acquired 19-year-old forward Hudson Morrison of Souris and future considerations from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s La Ronge Ice Wolves in exchange for 20-year-old former WHL forward Daulton Siwak and futures.

Morrison, a graduate of the Southwest Midget AAA Cougars, had six goals and 13 points in 30 games for the Ice Wolves and Estevan Bruins this season. Siwak scored 10 goals and racked up 30 points in 34 MJHL games this season.

In other moves:

• The Virden Oil Capitals added a defenceman when Kevin Pochuk was returned by the WHL’s Moose Jaw Warriors, joining former Red Deer Rebel forward Christian Stockl, 18, as the second addition from the WHL this week. Pochuk, 18, had 21 points in 25 games with the Oil Capitals before joining the Warriors.

• The Portage Terriers acquired forward Bryce Knapp, 19, from the Central Canada Hockey League’s Cornwall (Ont.) Colts for futures.
