Yarmouth's Graves Traded By Charlottetown To Val-d'Or

Yarmouth's Ryan Graves is on the move. The 18-year-old defenceman with the Charlottetown Islanders was traded today to the Val-d'Or Foreurs in exchange for defenceman David Henley. Graves played 169 games in two-and-a-half seasons with the PEI franchise, scoring eight goals and adding 29 assists. The deal came just before the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League trade deadline struck this afternoon. Graves was selected in the fourth round of the 2013 NHL entry draft, 110th overall by the New York Rangers. He played major midget hockey with the Charlie's Pizza South Shore Mustangs.
