The QMJHL trading period closed its doors Wednesday and the big prize of the flurry of deals snuck under the wire up to the Abitibi-Témiscamingue in black and red.
The Rouyn-Noranda Huskies made the biggest splash in the midnight hour, picking up San Jose first rounder Timo Meier from the Halifax Mooseheads for a first and second rounder in 2017 and a fourth round pick in 2018.
Meier, the Moosehead captain and the winner of the league’s Michael-Bossy Trophy for best professional prospect last season, was the biggest name on the move by noon Wednesday as the league closed their annual mid-season trading window. The period opened up December 19.
The Huskies, the league’s second best team after a Val-d’Or Foreur win Tuesday pushed them out of top spot, also moved out a pair of players, their first rounder last summer Louis-Filip Côté and Vincent Chapleau, recovering a trio of draft picks in return, including a first rounder in 2018.
