Alex MacDonald Ford Western Capitals made a trade on Saturday night, sending the rights to goaltender Matt Williams, and Forward Hunter McIntyre to the Amherst Ramblers in exchange for the rights to G Daniel Thompson, F Brandon Stone, a conditional 3rd round pick in 2019 and future considerations. “We made good on a bad situation, Matt expressed he would like to go to another team and Hunter left our team last season. We were able to get a great goaltender in Daniel and a highly skilled forward in Brandon who can put the puck in the net.” -GM Pat McIver
