The Charlottetown Islanders acquired 16-year-old defenceman Vincent Roy and an eighth round pick in 2014 from the Gatineau Olympiques on Friday for winger Deverick Ottereyes, 19, and a 10th round pick in 2015.

Ottereyes, an eighth round pick of the P.E.I. Rocket in 2011, had four goals, eight points and 18 penalty minutes in 33 games with Charlottetown this season and had 29 points in 134 career games on P.E.I. 

The six-foot, two-inch, 189-pound Roy was an invitee to Gatineau camp and hasn't seen action this season.

“We are pleased with this deal from the stand point that we are acquiring a good young defenceman that will fit into our long term plan as an organization. He is ready to play and we hope to have him in our lineup this weekend,” said Grant Sonier, Islanders general manager, in a release. “We would also like to thank Deverick for all his contributions to this organization both on and off the ice. We wish him all the best going forward."

Earlier in the trade period, which ends Jan. 7, the Islanders sent Yan Pavel Laplante and Julien Leduc to Victoriaville for first round picks in 2015 and 2016, and a fourth-rounder in 2014, and send Matthew Bursey to Blainville-Boisbriand for Matthew Cusson.  

The Islanders host the Acadie-Bathurst Titan Saturday at 7 p.m. at Eastlink Centre in Game 1 of a home-and-home series. Game 2 is Sunday at 3 p.m. in Bathurst.
