The Cape Breton Eagles have announced their opening night roster for the 2020-21 season following a series of trades and multiple player reassignments.
The Eagles have acquired forward Jack Campbell (2003-03-09) from the Drummondville Voltigeurs in exchange for Baie-Comeau’s fourth round draft pick in 2021. Campbell recorded three points in 54 games last season with Drummondville. He will self-quarantine at his home in PEI and then join the Eagles in Sydney.
The Eagles have also traded Xavier Ducharme (2003-04-24) to Rimouski in exchange for Rimouski’s seventh round draft choice in 2021. As part of a prior deal, the Eagles have traded their sixth round draft pick in 2021 to Sherbrooke in exchange for Baie-Comeau’s eight round pick in 2021.
The following players have been reassigned, with the teams/leagues/levels they are being assigned to in brackets.
Kian Bell (Dartmouth/NSU18MHL/U18)
Alexis Bolduc (Joliette/LHJQ/Jr. A)
Blake Deacon (Valley/MHL/Jr. A)
Colby Huggan (Charlottetown/NBPEIMU18HL/U18)
Tanner Greatorex (Truro/MHL/Jr. A)
Jack Cashen (Sydney/NSU18MHL/U18)
This leaves 23 players on the Cape Breton Eagles roster, including import forwards Ivan Ivan and Mikhail Nizovkin who are both currently in Europe. Ivan and Nizovkin will arrive once permission for travel is granted.
