The Grande Prairie Storm have traded 2004 Gabriel Filion to the Princeville Tigers of the QJHL. In return, the Storm receive the playing rights to 2002 defenceman Antoine Desrochers, who was recently released from Chicoutimi of the QMJHL.
“Anytime you can add a player of not only Antoine’s caliber but his experience and a player who’s won a championship - it’s an easy decision for the staff to make,” says Storm General Manager Mark Bomersback.
“We look forward to getting him in the lineup this weekend and for him to be able to help our team. We are getting better and better daily; we want to be more consistent and start stringing some wins together before the holiday break.”
The Storm wish Gabriel all the best in his hockey future and look forward to the arrival of Antoine.
