The Red Deer Rebels have acquired goaltender Connor Ungar from the Brandon Wheat Kings and forward Liam Keeler from the Edmonton Oilers.
On Monday, Brent Sutter, Rebels president and general manager, announced the Western Hockey League trade, which will send defenceman Mason Ward, 19, to the Wheat Kings in exchange for the 19-year-old netminder.
Just two hours later, the Rebels announced another trading, sending forward Jaxsen Wiebe, 19, to the Edmonton Oil Kings in exchange for 20-year-old Keeler.

Keeler scored 12 points in 19 games with the Oil Kings this past season. He has 74 points in 214 career WHL games.
