Blizzard gets defenseman Ethan McLaughlin
EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick — The Edmundston Blizzard acquired defenseman Ethan McLaughlin Nov. 15 in a deal with the Drayton Valley Thunder, a team of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL), in return for future considerations.
The arrival of McLaughlin will allow the Blizzard defense unit to breathe after being decimated by injuries lately.
The 19-year-old rearguard McLaughlin stands 5’10’’ and weighs 161 pounds. A native of Penticton, BC, he has played in 21 games this season with Drayton Valley, earning four assists. Last season, he collected seven points in 51 games with Salmon Arm and Alberni Valley, two teams from the British Columbia Hockey League.
