Report: Fortin Will Be Traded

The Saint John Sea Dogs will trade defenseman Louis-Philip Fortin to the Shawinigan Cataractes, reports Steve Turcotte of Le Nouvelliste.
Fortin, 16, is currently playing with the Quebec Midget AAA Hockey League’s Magog Cantonniers.

The Sherbrooke native was a fifth-round pick of the Quebec Remparts in this year’s QMJHL Entry Draft. He was traded to Saint John along with a 2017 fourth-round pick in exchange for Alex McQuaid and a 2015 fifth-round pick.

As seen above, Turcotte reports that the Dogs will receive third- and fourth-round picks from the Cataractes in the deal. The years of the picks were not reported.

Overagers, imports and non-roster players can currently be traded. The official trading period begins on Dec. 19.
