Cornwall Ontario — The Nationals shook things up on Monday night with a blockbuster trade.
General manager Basem Awwad shipped Jason Dolgy’s rights to the Watertown Wolves in exchange for defenceman Stanislav Vlasov and former Nationals forward Lou Dickenson.
“Vlasov is a tough, rugged defenceman that will help secure our blue line,” said Awwad.
The 27-year-old defenceman from Russia won the Commissioner’s Cup title in 2015 with the Wolves.
Dickenson suited up in 14 games for the Nationals earlier this season. The flashy forward had 10 goals and 10 assists for 20 points.
Unfortunately, Dolgy was no longer a fit in Cornwall.
The Nationals are back on home ice next weekend with a pair of Federal Hockey League contests at the Civic Complex. On Saturday, Cornwall hosts the Port Huron Prowlers at 7:30 p.m. And on Sunday, the Nationals take on the Berlin River Drivers at 2 p.m.
