Ramblers make trade with Bearcats

AMHERST – The Maritime Hockey League’s Amherst CIBC Wood Gundy Ramblers recently made a trade with the Truro Bearcats.

The Bearcats dealt the rights to forwards Luke McCaw and Chad Bannister to the Ramblers in exchange for the rights to forward Alexandros Soumakis.

 McCaw is a native of St. John’s, Newfoundland.

The 18 year old spent last season with the Powell River Kings of the BCHL where he posted 13 points in 56 regular season games. Prior to that, he was an offensive threat in midget, first with the St. John’s Privateers and then with the Notre Dame Hounds. With the Hounds as a 16 year old, McCaw scored 25 goals and added 21 assists in 42 regular season games.

Bannister is a native of Timberlea, Nova Scotia.

In 34 regular season games, the 18 year old registered 13 points in 34 regular season games with the NSMAA Newbridge Academy Gladiators.

In 17 playoff games, Bannister posted six goals and five assists. McCaw and Bannister were both selected in the 2013 MHL draft by Truro, going in rounds four and nine respectively.

Soumakis is entering his final season of junior eligibility. The Montreal native has spent the last three seasons in the QMJHL with the Gatineau Olympiques and, most recently, the Acadie-Bathurst Titan. In 130 regular season and playoff games, Soumakis racked up 40 goals and 36 assists along with 123 penalty minutes. He was selected by the Ramblers in this past June’s QMJHL Supplementary Draft.
