The Saskatoon Blades have more goaltending depth to the organization following a trade with the Spokane Chiefs.

The Blades have acquired 1996-born goaltender Trevor Martin from Spokane in exchange for a conditional 7th round selection in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft.

Listed at 6’2, Trevor spent the season playing midget AAA with the Leduc Oil Kings. He went 9-4-1 this season with a .925 save percentage and 2.41 goals against average, along with 3 shutouts. He’s from Ardrossan, Alberta and was originally a 9th round pick by the Chiefs in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.

“Trevor is a big and mobile goaltender,” said Blades managing partner Colin Priestner. “He had an excellent season with Leduc, adds depth to our goaltending position and will battle to make our team at training camp in the fall.”

    Having a coaching staff and fellow players with belief in a player’s ability has always been huge for that player’s confidence. But for the goaltender, it is even of greater importance , I think most fans felt that Alex Moodie was a quality talent, but because of circumstances beyond his control , he never really was able to build that confidence in himself to develope. Now he is traded and they bring in another goaler , what does that say about the other goalies on the team roster now, will anything change to encourage and develope team belief and confidence in these goaltenders and for the goaltenders themselves that ever so important confidence ? OH, on these trades, how many of our Blades got traded the past several years only to become huge successes with the receiving clubs, ya’ll got to think about that one,!! Will Alex be the next one??
