Dempsey Traded To Capitals In Big Trade

The St. Stephen County Aces and Summerside Western Capitals have completed a huge MHL trade.

The Aces sent the rights to former Sea Dogs forward and Boston Bruins draft pick Mitchell Dempsey to the Capitals in exchange for the rights to Halifax Mooseheads netminder Kevin Resop, a conditional first-round pick in the 2016 MHL draft, a conditional first-round pick in the 2017 draft and future considerations.

Dempsey has been floating around the ECHL this year on tryout agreements. On Nov. 9, the Manchester Monarchs released him from an amateur tryout agreement.

The 20-year-old forward has roots in St. Stephen, but the Aces sit in the MHL’s basement once again with only four wins in 21 games. Meanwhile, Summerside is stacked and boasts a league leading 17-4-0-0 record.

“Any time you can add some size, and play in your top six, we consider that a huge win,” said Capitals head coach and associate general manager Billy McGuigan in a news release. “We’re very happy to have Mitch, and looking forward to seeing him in the lineup.”

According to the Caps, Dempsey was expected to arrive in Summerside later this evening.

Dempsey was a seventh-round pick of the Bruins in 2013. The Sea Dogs picked up the Cambridge, Ont. native from the OHL last year and he went on to record eight goals and 17 assists in 60 regular season QMJHL games.

Summerside’s next game is on Thursday night against Pictou County.
