Banshees Make a Trio of Trades

In Uncategorized on July 28, 2022 at 11:45 am

The Boston Banshees have made three more trades to help kick off a busy offseason.

In the first move, they traded veteran forward Charlie Coyle, young defenseman Nicolas Beaudin, and a third round pick to Pittsburgh in exchange for winger Reilly Smith. In the second, they flipped goaltending prospect Cayden Primeau to West Virginia for forward Gabriel Vilardi. In the third, they opened some roster spots by sending forward Julien Gauthier, defenseman Niko Mikkola and a fourth round pick to Denver for a third rounder.

The Smith acquisition may be a significant one, as he goes a long way to shoring up the Banshees’ top six. Smith has topped 20 goals in 7 of his last 8 GWMHL seasons, including 25 in 2021-22, and is just one year removed from a 41-goal campaign.
