SUMMERSIDE – Brandon Parsons and Tanner McCabe will not be returning to the Weeks Crushers lineup in September.

The pair were moved in separate trades on Saturday, which were announced before the MHL draft got underway.

Parsons, a native of Plaster Rock, N.B., was traded to the Woodstock Slammers for a third round pick in 2014 and 2015, plus future considerations.

For a first round pick this year and McCabe the Crushers received Daniel Walsh from the Amherst Ramblers.

Pictou County had two other trades before the draft, both with the Bridgewater Lumberjacks. In the first move they sent Makail Parker to the Lumberjacks for Luc Porier. The Crushers received future considerations for goaltender Darryl MacCallum in the second trade.
