The Portage Terriers have made a pair of trades this week leading up to Monday’s CJHL trade deadline. This year due to COVID-19 all teams will need to be at 25 players or less by the 6pm deadline compared to the normal 23.
The Terriers have traded F Dylan Winsor (02) to the Thunder Bay North Stars (SIJHL) for Future Considerations and then acquired F Nathan Hinds (02) from the Selkirk Steelers for Future Considerations.
Hinds (5’11, 165) is in his third season in the MJHL. As a 17-year-old rookie he suited up for 17 games with the Steelers and then played another seven last year and had a total of two points. This season his production increased to 12 points in 31 games. Terrier head coach and GM Blake Spiller describes him as a “physical forward who can play both center and on the wing”. The Winnipeg product was drafted 49th overall in the WHL Bantam draft in 2017 by the Everett Silvertips and 65th overall that year by the Winkler Flyers.
Winsor was acquired by Portage last season from the Dauphin Kings and played in only two games. This season he posted a goal and an assist in 20 games with the Terriers.
