Dragons Shake Things Up

Mappin Traded to Brooks for Kingston and Future Considerations

The Drumheller Dragons have acquired 1997-born forward Rhett Kingston and future considerations from the Brooks Bandits in exchange for 1996-born Tyrell Mappin.

Brian Curran, “I like Rhett’s all-around game. As a former Notre Dame Hound I know that we have acquired a good young man with strong character and work ethic.  Kingston has always put up good numbers wherever he’s been and we look forward to giving him that opportunity here.”

Kingston who hails from Black Diamond, Alberta was acquired by Brooks from the Notre Dame Hounds of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, where he had recorded 15 points (7 goals, 8 assists) in 17 games in his rookie season. In his time with the Bandits he scored 1 goal and 1 assist in six games.

“I have enjoyed my time coaching Ty. I think he is a skilled and a good young man. I believe this is a smart move for the Dragons currently and as we move forward for seasons to come, “Curran.

The Drumheller Dragons wish Mappin all the best and future success with the Brooks Bandits.

Kingston hits the ice with the Dragons on Friday, December 4th at 7:30pm when they host the Whitecourt Wolverines.
