Nationals complete first trade; sign two more
CORNWALL ONTARIO – The Nationals have made their first Federal Hockey League transaction and acquired forward MJ Graham.
In 49 games with the Brewster Bulldogs last season, the 23-year-old from Montreal had 11 goals and 43 assists for 54 points.
The 5-foot-10, 194 lb. Graham will add even more speed to an already talented group of forwards.
Meanwhile, with their inaugural home opener only nine days away, the Nationals have added a pair of players.
Cornwall has come to terms with Sean Blunden and Marley Keca.
Blunden, a former Cornwall Colt, also suited up for Orleans and Gloucester in the CCHL.
The 26-year-old has spent the last four seasons with Concordia University in the CIS. In 17 games last season, he had three goals and 10 assists for 13 points.
The versatile Blunden can play both forward and defence.
Keca, a 23-year-old from Montreal, has also played for Concordia.
He appeared in two LNAH contests last season with the Laval Predateurs, picking up a pair of assists.
The Nationals travel to Watertown, NY, tonight to take on the Wolves in FHL pre-season play. The two teams are back in action at the Civic Complex on Saturday night in the final tune-up for the regular season.
The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday night. Tickets are $10 for adults/seniors/students and $5 for children under the age of 12. Tickets can be purchased at the Civic Complex box office.
The Nationals’ inaugural FHL home opener is Sunday, Oct. 30 vs. Danville at 1 p.m.
