The Charlottetown Islanders traded two players Friday, including a former first round selection, as the Quebec Mjaor Junior Hockey League pre-season trade window nears its end.
Gone are forward Victor Provencher, 20, and goaltending prospect Charles-Olivier Lajoie, 17.
Provencher, one of P.E.I. two first round picks in 2010, was sent to Chicoutimi for a second round pick in 2014 and a conditional third round pick in 2015.
The Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., native had 49 goals, 94 points and 269 penalty minutes in 201 games with the Islanders.
Provencher was one of four 20-year-olds on the Isles pre-season roster. Teams can only carry three overage players by the time the regular season starts.
Charlottetown sent Lajoie, a sixth round round pick in 2012, to Victoriaville for a fifth round pick in 2015 and it helps make the six-man log jam for the backup goalie position clearer.
The trade period ends Monday at 11 a.m., AT.
Charlottetown plays its first pre-season home game Saturday versus Moncton. Game time is 2 p.m. in Pownal.
