CONFIRMED: Remparts acquire Lovell from Chicoutimi


The Chicoutimi Sagueneens have dealt defenceman Brian Lovell to the Quebec Remparts.

In return, the Remparts send defenceman Alexander McQuaid to the Sagueneens.

Lovell, 19, will add even more experience to the hosts of the upcoming 2015 MasterCard Memorial Cup.

The Chateauguay, Que., native was a member of the 2013 Memorial Cup champion Halifax Mooseheads. Prior to joining the Mooseheads championship team, Lovell skated for the OHA Gold Mavericks Midget AAA in the OEHL. The six-foot-one defenceman tallied 11 points in two seasons with the Mooseheads before being dealt to Chicoutimi in August, 2014. In 30 games with the Sagueneens this season, Lovell has amassed nine points and 52 penalty minutes. Lovell will join former teammates Matt Murphy and Zachary Fucale.

McQuaid will join the Sagueneens blueline. The Meadowbank, P.E.I native was a fourth-round pick of the Saint John Sea Dogs in 2013. In his rookie season with the Sea Dogs, McQuaid tallied three assists and 134 penalty minutes. The younger brother of Boston Bruins’ Adam McQuaid was dealt to the Remparts in the off-season. In 32 games with Quebec, McQuaid had two assists and 64 penalty minutes.

The winter trading period comes to an end today at 12 p.m. ET.
