Thursday was a busy day for Red Deer Rebels management.
General manager/head coach Jesse Wallin pulled the trigger on a pair of trades sure to shake up the roster of a Rebels club that has plummeted in the standings in recent weeks.
The first trade shipped Rebels forward Daulton Siwak to the Prince George Cougars in exchange for forward Charles Inglis, 19.
The Rebels also gave up a 2012 third-round pick in the deal.
Inglis is in his forth season in the Western Hockey League and was a fourth overall pick of the Saskatoon Blades in the 2007 WHL bantam draft.
In 69 games with the Cougars last season, Inglis had 32 goals, 28 assists and 141 penalty minutes.
The second of Thursday’s deals saw the Rebels acquire defenceman Devan Fafard, 17, and 2012 bantam draft seventh-round pick in exchange for forward Locke Muller, 18, and defenceman Matthew Puhfal, 18.
Fafard, in the midst of his rookie season, was an eighth-round pick of the Saskatoon Blades in the 2009 WHL bantam draft.
In 23 games with the Blades this season, Fafard has two assists and 38 penalty minutes.
