Victoria Cougars, Saanich Braves complete player swap

The Victoria Cougars and Saanich Braves of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League completed a four-player deal that paid off quickly for the latter.

The Braves received Jake Daughtry, Nyshan Basra and future considerations to the Cougars for Sam McMullen and Garrett Kemmler.

Daughtry scored once and set up another goal in Saanich’s 6-2 loss to Kerry Park last Saturday. Basra added an assist on Daughtry’s first-period goal.

The Braves woes continued last night against the West Shore Wolves, with another 6-2 loss.

The newcomers to the Cougars were held off the scoreboard Sunday in the team’s 3-0 win over Nanaimo, but Ryan Carson did manage a natural hat trick, scoring once in the second and twice in the third period. Victoria hosts the Oceanside Generals tonight (7 p.m.) at Archie Browning Sports Centre.
