Fadden Requested Trade
According to Gregg Drinnan of the Kamloops Daily News:
It turns out that F Mitch Fadden, 20, who was dealt by Lethbridge to the Tri-City Americans on Wednesday, had asked the Hurricanes for a trade a couple of weeks ago. Fadden, D Cam Stevens, 19, and D Brock Sutherland, 17, were sent to the Americans foir D Eric Mestery, 18, and C Drew Hoff, 20. . . . â€œI talked to them and told them I wanted to be moved,â€ Fadden told Annie Fowler of the Tri-City Herald. â€œI needed a fresh start. I wasnâ€™t playing as well I could have. Iâ€™m excited to come back to the Western Conference. I was happy it was Tri-City, itâ€™s a team I wanted to go to. For both sides, I think it worked out really well.â€ . . . The Americans, of course, are hoping to catch lightning in a bottle, having acquired the high-scoring Colton Yellow Horn from the Hurricanes two years ago. â€œI might have given (Bob) a better one this time,â€ Lethbridge GM Roy Stasiuk told Fowler. â€œMitch is worth the price of admission. Iâ€™m just glad they (Americans) arenâ€™t in our conference.â€
