The Amherst Ramblers have traded a 2nd round pick in the 2023 draft and a 5th round pick in 2024 to the Edmundston Blizzard for 20 year old forward Alex Savioe. The 2nd round pick was previously acquired in a trade with Summerside.
Savoie spent parts of the past two seasons with the Blizzard, becoming a player noted around the league with his fast and physical style of play, two traits that Ramblers general manager Jeff LeBlanc says will make him a fan favourite in Amherst.
“Alex brings more depth, experience, leadership, and skill to our forward group. He can skate and he finishes his checks. A first on the puck type player, very hard to play against. There’s no doubt in my mind he will be a fan favourite here in Amherst due to his compete level.”
Savoie and the Ramblers return town when training camp gets underway on August 29th.
