The Walkerton Capitals Jr. ‘C’ Hockey Club is excited to announce that we have completed another transaction; this time with the Hanover Barons! The Walkerton Capitals have acquired the rights to forward Carter Moran, in exchange for forward Elliott McCarey!
Moran, a 2004 born left winger, from Owen Sound, was apart of the Barons’ top 6 forward group last season that made their way to the Pollock Division league finals. He finished 5th in Hanover team scoring having accumulated 29 points in 41 games during the regular season; meanwhile, during the postseason, he finished 2nd in team scoring, having tallied another 12 points in 14 games. During his last 2 seasons with the Barons’, Carter has suited up for a total of 96 regular season and postseason games, having amassed 29 goals, 32 assists, good for 61 points during that time.
Capitals GM Jordan Turcotte had this to say following the transaction: “I’m excited to have acquired another great player in Carter Moran. Carter had expressed his interest and excitement in joining our evolving hockey and adding a player of Carter’s caliber will certainly help our offense moving forward, and I’m eager to see what he can do for our organization. Having been to the league finals the past few seasons, Carter brings leadership qualities, a positive outlook, and a great attitude to our ongoing culture shift within our organization. When it comes to trading players, it’s never easy, but it’s part of the business side of things. As time progressed, Elliott expressed his interest in pursuing other avenues in terms of playing elsewhere, and I was going to do what I could, to ensure Elliott had a comfortable place to play hockey; while also finding the right return for our organization here in Walkerton. On behalf of the Capitals organization, I would like to wish Elliott all the best with Hanover and in his future endeavors; as well as I’d like to thank him and the McCarey family for their time and dedication here in Walkerton with the Capitals organization”.
Please help us welcome Carter to the Capitals organization!
