Club bolsters lineup with addtion of tender Mark Yetman, sniper Chris Hulit
The Conception Bay North CeeBee Stars continue to change the landscape of the Newfoundland Senior Hockey League with a pair of late-breaking moves Tuesday (Nov. 27) evening.
First, the Harbour Grace-based club moved defenceman Tim Greene and a draft pick to the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts for goaltender Mark Yetman and a draft pick.
Then, the CeeBees released import goaltender Charles Lavigne, opening up an slot for sniper Chris Hulit.
Hulit is arguably the biggest name to come to Harbour Grace. He was the backbone of the Clarenville Caribous attack last season, registering 37 points (17 goals, 20 assists) in 24 games. In the two games Hulit has played this season, both against the CeeBees, he registered five points (one goal and four assists).
The Cataracts no longer had a need for Yetman with the emergence of A.J. Whiffen. For the most part, he has been skating with the Mount Pearl Samurai in the Avalon East Senior Hockey League, where he has registered three wins and one loss in four games.
Greene appeared in 10 games with the CeeBees, registering a single assist.
Lavigne gets released after posting his greatest performance of the season. He stopped 51 out of 53 shots in a 6-2 victory over the Caribous. In 10 games, the St. Bernadin native posted four wins and six losses.
