Martin Marincin Traded To Regina

via Reginapats.com:

The Regina Pats are proud to announce the acquisition of defenceman Martin Marincin as well as a 4th and 7th round pick in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft and a 4th in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft from the Prince George Cougars in exchange for defenceman Ricard Blidstrand, a 1st and 2nd round pick in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft and a 5th in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft.

Today marks the WHL's trade deadline and like the NHL, the day is marked by a frenzy of moves by middle-tier teams hoping to make a post-season run. The Pats, currently 5th in the Eastern Conference gave up a significant chunk of their next Bantam draft to acquire Marincin from the the also-ran Cougars.

The trade brings together the players who might make up the Oklahoma City Barons' bottom pairing for the 2012-13 season, Brandon Davidson and Martin Marincin. Davidson, an overager, has been a stalwart on the Pats' blueline for three years and is their top defenseman in all situations.

Marincin came in at #11 in our summer Top 25 Under 25. Davidson checked in at #18.
