ROSTER MOVEMENT | IceDogs trade MacPherson to Rangers

The Niagara IceDogs have announced that third year defenceman Justin MacPherson has been traded to the Kitchener Rangers, in exchange for 2 third-round picks (2020, 2022), and a conditional fifth round pick (2023).

MacPherson is a former fourth round pick (2016) of the IceDogs, and has played two full seasons with the team.

GM Joey Burke acknowledged the difficulty in making this roster movement, but believes it will benefit both the team and MacPherson. “This was a very difficult decision to move Justin. He has been an absolute pleasure to have here in Niagara. His work ethic and talent will be missed here, however the bottom line is that we needed to create space on our back end, and this deal accomplishes that while adding some very valuable draft picks to help us achieve our ultimate goal. I wish Justin nothing but success in Kitchener, and thank him for everything he has done in Niagara.”

The Niagara IceDogs would like to thank Justin for all he has done to help our team grow over the past two years, and wish him the best of luck in Kitchener.
