The Express swapped defenceman with the Spruce Grove Saints (AJHL) sending David Dotan's rights to Alberta in exchange for Tyler Hart just prior to training camp. Now while their junior A rights saw both players receive a new address, the two will be camp mates in the WHL. They will both take part in the main camp for the Vancouver Giants which opens on Sunday.
Hart had 1 goal and 1 assist in 41 games last season with Spruce Grove. Dotan meanwhile had 1 goal and 4 assists in 40 games with the Express last season. Dotan also has 41 games of WHL experience with the Prince Albert Raiders split over 3 seasons.
