The MJHL's top-scoring defenceman from the 2022-23 season is on the move. Hayden Lacquette is heading to the Waywayseecappo Wolverines in a trade that sees the Portage Terriers acquire forward Parker Korman and future considerations.
Lacquette was a fan favourite for the Terriers last season after putting up exactly a point-per-game in his first full season in Portage.
The product of Dauphin scored a hat-trick in the Terriers playoff opener last year against the Niverville Nighthawks, and he totalled three points in five games at the Centennial Cup tournament.
Lacquette finished the 2022-23 campaign sixth in penalty minutes (157), second in goals by a defenceman (15), fourth in power-play assists (19), and had three game-winning goals.
Korman is a 2003-born forward who played with the Neepawa Titans for the last two seasons. The Killarney native finished last year with 29 points in 54 games, which was good enough for fifth on the Titans in total points.
This is the third addition Portage has made to the Titans roster during the offseason. Korman now joins his former teammates Gavin Renwick and Kalen Reynolds in the Terriers' locker room.
If Korman is able to get to Portage quickly enough, he'll have the chance to take on his former team as the Terriers and Titans go head-to-head in a preseason matchup Thursday night.
