The Winnipeg ICE and Regina Pats have come together on a trade.
Wednesday, the ICE announced they had acquired 2002-born forward Carter Savoie from the Regina Pats. In exchange the Pats have received a fifth-round selection in the 2019 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft as well as two conditional draft choices.
Savoie, a product of St. Albert, Alta. was originally selected in the ninth round, 198th overall, by the Pats in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft. Currently playing with the Sherwood Park Crusaders of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, Savoie posted 73 points (31G-42A) in 58 games during the regular season. In the 2019 AJHL Playoffs, Savoie has 10 points (2G-8A) in 10 games.
“We are excited to add another draft pick to the 2019 draft,” said Pats VP of Hockey Operations and GM John Paddock. “We wish Carter all the best in the future.”
Savoie is the older brother of highly-touted prospect Matthew Savoie, who is eligible for the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft. The ICE hold the first and ninth overall selections in this year’s WHL Bantam Draft.
