Busy week of trades shakes up Cyclones roster

Listowel Banner

The Cyclones were a hive of activity recently, making deals back and forth to strengthen the team but at the same time losing some talented players. Announced early last, the Listowel Cyclones picked up Dan Mohle and Ken Rolph from the Guelph Hurricanes in exchange for Jake Weidner and Blair Goss. Listowel coach Mike Brooks said the pair of players is expected to add a great deal of skill and depth up front for the Cycs, as well as some needed offence. "We're a team that's had trouble scoring goals, so I think they're going to help us do that," Brooks said.Mohle was Guelph's leading scorer with 17 goals and 20 assists in 26 games, adding another goal and an assist against his former teammates last weekend. Mohle understands what is expected of him, and hopes he can continue finding the net. "That's something that they want from us, and hopefully we can help them out," he said. Rolph comes to Listowel with 13 goals and 12 assists, plus a goal and two assists in Saturday's game against the Hurricanes. Rolph said he enjoys Listowel so far, but regrets playing his old team right out of the gate. "It was kind of weird that we played them right away, but it was fun for sure," Rolph said. Listowel goalie Drew Pegrum also heads for Guelph in the deal, with Brock Hansell coming from the Thorold Blackhawks in his place. Unfortunately, the Cyclones were hit with some unexpected news that Adam and Chris Corbett had made a decision to return to the Jr. C Wingham Ironmen for personal reasons. Brooks said it's a tough loss, and one that wasn't factored on when making earlier trades.
