The Charlottetown Islanders finished remaking itself as the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League trade deadline came and went on Tuesday.
The big fish was 20-year-old captain Jack Nevins, who went to Rouyn-Noranda with a fourth round pick in 2014, for forward Julien Avon, 17, and a first round pick (from Blainville-Bosbriand), third round pick and fifth round pick all in 2014.
Nevins, a Stittsville, Ont., native, was a free agent signing last year and recently signed a deal with the Montreal Canadians.
Next to go was 17-year-old forward Alexis Pépin.
Islanders general manager Grant Sonier sent the former second overall pick in 2012 to Gatineau for first round picks in 2014 and 2015, and Ontario junior A forward Curtis Scale.
D-man Ryan Graves, 18 and a former P.E.I. Rocket first round pick in 2011, is now in Val-d'Or along with a third round pick (from Blainville). In return, the Isles received defencemen David Henley, 16, and Vladislav Lysenko, 18, a Kiev, Ukraine native.
Lysenko gives the Islanders one European player after the team traded Czech Republic native Matej Beran to Sherbrooke and cut ties with German import Marco Sedlar.
Charlottetown also picked up forward Robert Pelletier from Acadie-Bathurst for a ninth round pick this year.
Tuesday's deals gave Charlottetown 12 trades since the trade period began Dec. 22, and brought in 11 new players, most of which are 18 or under.
