For the second time this week the Terriers and Millionaires have swapped skaters.
The Portage Terriers announced Thursday that the team acquired 19-year-old defenceman Troy Williams from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League's (SJHL) Melville Millionaires in exchange for defender Cole Thompson and future considerations.
Williams, a native of Dryden, Ont., has one goal in two games this season with the Millionaires and tallied 29 points (9-20—29) last season while splitting time between the SJHL's Flin Flon Blombers and the MJHL's Steinbach Pistons.
Thompson, of Devils Lake, N.D., has three assists in seven games played this season for the Terriers.
At 5-foot-11, 195 lbs, the addition of Williams to the Terriers' back end brings some much needed size.
The Terriers next hit the ice Saturday on the road in Waywayseecappo before returning home Sunday for a date with the Natives.
