According to a facebook fan page that is being run by the Marquis de Jonquiere, the Cornwall River Kings have apparently solved their goaltending issue by dealing Frederic Piche.
Translated, this status says that Frederic Piche and a 4th round pick are being sent to Jonquiere in exchange for Bobby Mazerolle, Ahmed Mahfouz and a 10th round pick.
Bobby Mazerolle is a 26 year old Latvian who had plenty of success in the QMJHL suiting up for the Moncton Wildcats and Gatineau Olympiques before making the move to the LNAH. He has spent the past 6 years in the LNAH with the last two with the Marquis. His points have dwindled in recent years but maybe a change of scenery is all he needs.
Ahmed Mahfouz needs no introduction to Cornwall fans as he won an FHL championship with the Akwesasne Warriors back in 2011. A CCHL alumni of the Nepean Raiders, Mahfouz spent last year in Dayton, Ohio with the Dayton Demons of the FHL. Notching an astonishing 111 points in 46 games player, this will be a welcoming addition to the Cornwall River Kings lineup.
Of course, this is all speculation as it is on a fan page and it would only mean dealing the LNAH rights of the players. Will update when I have a more official confirmation.
