Calgary, AB – Calgary Hitmen General Manager Kelly Kisio announced today a five player trade with the Moose Jaw Warriors.

The Hitmen acquire 18-year-old left winger Danny Gayle, 18-year-old left winger Nathan MacMaster and 18-year-old goaltender Brandon Glover in exchange for 18-year-old forwards Cody Beach and Mackenzie Royer.

Gayle, a former member of the Calgary AAA Midget Flames, has 10 points (3g 7a) in 18 games with the Warriors.

MacMaster, who won a gold medal with Team Pacific at the 2009 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, has 13 points (5g 8a) in 22 games while Glover posted a 3.40 goals against average and a .890 save percentage with the Warriors last season.
