PUSKAR TRADED TO QUESNEL
Well, after a month of October that saw the Express go 2-11-0-1 including going 0-8-0-1 on the road, it's no surprise that the Express have made some changes.
Jon Puskar has been traded to the Quesnel Millionaires in exchange for the playing rights of James Bettauer and future considerations.
Puskar came to the Express this season from the Lincoln Stars of the USHL where he was teammates with Rich Manley.
The Canton Michigan native got off to a good start this season like the team did scoring 6 goals in his first 5 games. However, like many of his teamamates in October, Puskar cooled off considerably scoring just 3 goals in his last 15 games and is goal less in his last 7.
At the time of his trade, Puskar was leading the Express in scoring with 24 points.
Bettauer is 18 years old weighing in at 180lbs. He played last season with the Chilliwack Bruins of the WHL scoring 1 goal and 7 points in 68 games. In 07-08 Bettauer played 42 games and had 3 points with the Penticton Vees.
In another transaction, the Express traded Kai Ohs to the Humboldt Broncos in exchange for future considerations.
