The deal was announced by the La Ronge Ice Wolves via Twitter at 7:45 p.m. this evening.
Sagen has tallied 13 goals and 28 points in 28 games for the Ice Wolves so far in 2013-14 and immediately adds offense to a Bruins lineup that already features two of the SJHL’s top-five scorers in Austin Daae (23G, 21A) and Tanner Froese (13G, 25A).
In Blatz, the Ice Wolves add a serviceable top-six defenceman with more than 130 games of SJHL experience. La Ronge has struggled with the defensive side of the game this season, surrendering a league-high 128 goals against. After getting off to a great start, the Ice Wolves have plummeted in the league and Sherwood Division standings, currently sitting third in the SJHL’s north-most division with a 15-17-2-0 record.
The Bruins next action comes Jan. 8 when they host the Notre Dame Hounds. The La Ronge Ice Wolves are also in action tomorrow as they welcome the surging Battlefords North Stars.
