The Lloydminster Bobcats have acquired Liam Noble in exchange for Ty Mosimann.
The trade announcement made on Sunday will see 20-year-old Mosimann head to the Notre Dame Hounds of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.
Since 2018, Mosimann played 150 games with 58 points in a Bobcats uniform and was one of two returning players last season.
Bobcats Head Coach and General Manager Nigel Dube mentioned Mosimann being the last piece of the organization, including staff and players, prior to when Dube took over in November 2018.
“Ty is a good kid,” said Dube ” I just felt that it was necessary steps that we need to take to move forward and move Ty on to another place and give him a fresh start for his final season.”
Keeping an eye on Noble for the last two years, Dube said the organization is excited about Noble’s offensive game and his potential as a forward for the team.
“We’re excited about that our core guys are coming back and then to be able to add on pieces like Liam is big for our organization and our squad.”
Although he was traded from the Hounds, Noble played last season with the Penticton Vees of the BCHL recording one assist in 38 games.
“He brings knowledge from being in that dressing room there and how Freddie [Harbinson] runs it. I used to play for Freddie there too, so knowing what goes on there, I think that’s a big asset to our team.
The Lloydminster Bobcats’ season has been pushed back as the Alberta Junior Hockey League waits for approvals from the provincial government and Hockey Alberta on how to move forward.
