OCN Blizzard pick up Shane Roulette in trade with Wolverines

The OCN Blizzard have traded 1995 list player Matthew Cameron and 1996 forward Brayden Cullum to the Waywayseecappo Wolverines in exchange for a 1997 forward Shane Roulette and a conditional 6th round draft pick in 2016-17.

Roulette, 6’, 200 lbs, appeared in 31 games for the Wolverines during the 2014-15 season, recording 1 goals and 4 assists for 5 points with 14 penalty minutes. Previous to playing junior hockey, the Winnipeg-native played 26 games with Winnipeg Thrashers AAA Midget, recording 11 goals and 8 assists for 19 points with 26 penalty minutes.

Roulette participated in last season’s Hit the Ice Program and was also a member of Team Manitoba at the 2015 National Aboriginal Hockey Championship where he teamed up fellow OCN Blizzard teammates Hayden Yaremko, Anthony Keeper and Daylon Campbell.

“Shane has been a teammate to a few of our present players which make it an easier transition to our team.  As well, we are very aware of his skills and upside potential as Shane has been a player we have been trying to acquire for some time now.  I am very pleased our team finally completed this move”, Head Coach/GM Smith explains.  

Heading to Wolverines, Cullum, 19, appeared in 57 games with the Blizzard during the 2014-15 season, recording 8 points (5g-3a) while accumulating 84 penalty minutes.  

The OCN Blizzard wish Brayden Cullum all the best with the Wolverines.  Brayden is a quality character and a good hockey player.
