The Terriers say goodbye to their Captain in a multi trade deal

Terriers’ Captain Adam Wowryk heading to the Winnipeg Blues.

The Terriers have traded forward Ryan Mignault and the list rights of Ethan Stuckless to Wayway for Rhett Lough.

In a second deal, Lough was traded along with Captain Adam Wowryk along with a fourth round draft pick to the Winnipeg Blues for forwards James McIsaac, Takato Cox, and Aidan Buhler.

McIsaac a 99 forward has played this season and his last for the Winnipeg Blues. In 66 games played the 5’9, 165 Winnipeg Native scored 14 goals and put up 18 assists.

Takato Cox a native of Redondo Beach, CA has played 18 games for the Blues this season earning himself 7 points. The 98 forward is 5’8 and weighs 165 pounds.

5’8, 160 pound Aidan Buhler also a 99, from Mitchell Manitoba has played 11 games with the Blues this season and is looking for his first point. 

Coach and GM Blake Spiller talks about the trade.  - “Mignault just returned from injury and will fit in real well in Wayway with familiarity to Stanley and Martin. Lough was then flipped along with Wowryk to the Blues for 3 young forwards. McIsaac is a 17 year old in his second season in the league and is a skilled player who has some grit to his game. 18 year old Cox is a rookie with very good speed and skill. Buhler is a 17 year old speedy hard working physical player.

Moving Wowy was a tough decision. He was a very good Captain this year and a big piece of our Turnbull Cup Championship last season. Adam is a player who plays much bigger than his stature and will make the Blues instantly better. Acquiring McIsaac, Cox and Buhler obviously makes us younger up front. All 3 will bring speed, energy and skill and we’re looking forward to getting them into our lineup”

Adam Wowryk was traded to the Terriers in a deal with the Selkirk Steelers early last season. Wowryk made an impact in the line up bringing his experience and skill to the team. in 52 games with the Terriers last season, Adam scored 21 goals and earned 36 assists making him a great choice to wear the C this season.

Adam Wowryk – “I loved playing in Portage. They were by far the best organization I have played for. It was truly an honour being a dog and I wish them nothing but the best.”

The Terriers organization would like to wish Wowryk and Mignault the best as they move on from Portage.
