Midland and Vancouver Swap Forwards

In DEN, News, Transactions, VAN on July 2, 2011 at 9:28 am

The Midland Bulldogs and Vancouver Night Train have kicked off the summer with a center-for-winger swap.

The move sends pivot Tomas Plekanec to Vancouver, who are looking to recapture the ’09-’10 form of a team that was deep up the middle, for winger David Jones.

The Bulldogs are hoping that Jones, who has played 64 games over three seasons for Vancouver, gives them a top-six goal-scorer to play alongside the likes of Vincent Lecavalier, Danny Briere, Mike Richards, and Matt Duchene. Plekanec, meanwhile, is coming off a disappointing year (21 points in 61 games) but will likely see more icetime behind Jonathan Toews on the Night Train.
