GRAND FALLS – The Grand Falls Rapids announced Wednesday afternoon that they had traded defenseman BRENDAN BORNSTEIN to the Campbellton Tigers in return of another blue liner, LUCAS MacAULAY, as well as the rights to forward EVAN JACKSON, a first round pick in the 2019 draft belonging to the Amherst Ramblers, and future considerations.
MacAulay, a native of Cardigan (P.E.I.), played in 26 games this season for the Tigers, picking up 5 points with 2 goals and 3 assists. The 18-year-old is however mostly viewed as an excellent player at the blue line.
As for Evan Jackson, the 16-year-old Moncton native is a product of the Moncton Flyers at the midget AAA level.
Brendan Bornstein, who played 23 games this season for the Rapids, totaled 24 points with 4 goals and 20 assists. A native of Boston (Massachusetts), the 20-year-old captain played a key role at the blue line and was also a superb leader on and off the ice. He was very proud to be involved with team activities, most notably with the younger players at the minor level. We salute Brendan for his services brought to the team this season and also towards the community of Grand Falls!
The Rapids have also acquired the services of another defenseman on Wednesday. JORDAN SPADAFORE, an 18-year-old native of Whitefish (Ontario), played this season in the QMJHL with Rimouski and Val D’or. He was also a member of the Rayside-Balfour Canadians of the Northern Ontario Junior League (NOJHL) where he amassed 40 points (6 goals and 34 assists) during the 2017-2018 campaign.
