The Saskatoon Blades 20 year old situation has finally been resolved, kind of.
Forward Sena Acolatse has been traded to the Prince George Cougars for a 2011 3rd round pick. It seems to be a very very nice return for a guy who hadn't even established any kind of role on this year's team.
Acolatse will join former teammate Charles Inglis in Prince George, where he is expected to make his debut tomorrow night.
That means that the 20 year olds are goaltender Steven Stanford, captain and defenseman Teigan Zahn and first line center Marek Viedensky. I said it solved the situation "kind of" because the Blades still have the rights to defenseman Jyri Niemi and Galean Patterson, but both of those players aren't expected back.
The next and final thing to be solved for this team is the story between the pipes. Stanford is now a lock for this team, which means either Adam Morrison or Adam Iwan are soon to be gone. The Blades will not carry a third goalie for the year.
Who is the odd man out between the two? Or could it be both? Those are the final questions.
Morrison has the most value, and could very well be traded. But Iwan was shaky in his first performance of the year against Brandon on Friday. Could he be cut loose as well?
It may seem odd, but the team could possibly even bring in an 18 year old goalie through trade to serve as the teams backup behind Stanford.
The trade of Acolatse solves one more piece to the puzzle that is the 2010-2011 Saskatoon Blades, but don't be shocked if more changes are on the way yet.
