The Drumheller Dragons and the Sherwood Park Crusaders completed a multi-player transaction involving four players, it was announced Tuesday.
The Dragons have sent 2001 born forward Brett Wieschorster and 1999 born forward Tyson Scott to the Sherwood Park Crusaders in exchange for the rights to 1999 born goaltender Joshua Brindza and 2000 born defenseman Aiden Yakimchuk.
