The Terriers and Kings have made a deal that will see 20 year olds Howard Yawit and Ashton Clark head to Dauphin.
The Terriers traded the CJHL playing rights of both forwards for the CJHL playing rights of 97 Kirkland Lycar and 97 Kelby Picard.
Lycar an Elma Manitoba native played his last two seasons with the Dauphin Kings with two games in the WHL with the Brandon Wheat Kings. With 60 games played last season, Lycar averaged just under a point per game. In 5 games this season, the 19 year old scored 3 goals and picked up 2 assists.
Picard also a Manitoba boy from Beausejour played his last season with the Kings. The 6 footer played 46 games and scored 3 goals and 4 assists while putting up 104 penalty minutes.
Yawit an Alaskan native and Clark from Aberdeen Saskatchewan came to Terriers by way of the SJHL in a trade with the Melfort Mustangs in the off season.
Yawit a hard working gritty forward has1 goal and 2 assists through 11 games with the Terriers this season. Clark a 6’2, 174 pound centre sits 27th overall in the league with 7 goals and 4 assists in 11 games with 44 penalty minutes.
Coach and GM Blake Spiller, “Giving up Clark and Yawit wasn’t something we were looking to do but we added two players a year younger. Picard is a gritty hard working energy player and Lycar is an offensive player with great vision. We are looking forward to getting both guys in our line up tomorrow night.”
