The Flin Flon Bombers will be without the services of defenceman Bryce Eviston, following his acquisition from the Dieppe Commandos Oct. 5. Bombers head coach/general manager Mike Reagan confirmed the 19-year-old blueliner is headed south of the 49th parallel to continue his hockey career.
Eviston was acquired by the Bombers in the trade that sent forward Justin Rasmussen to Dieppe of the Maritime League Oct. 5. He had been playing for the AJHL’s Brooks Bandits before being moved to Dieppe Oct. 5 and subsequently flipped to Flin Flon the same day.
In seven games, the 5-foot-10 defenceman had posted three assists and eight PIMs.
Reagan confirmed the team has received compensation for Eviston not reporting, but did not disclose exactly what compensation was received.
The Bombers will be back in action Friday night when they host the Weyburn Red Wings.
