The Charlottetown Islanders have added a veteran blue-liner in a swap of defencemen.
The Isles sent Kevin Laliberte, 17, to Drummondville for 18-year-old Dexter Weber.
Weber, a Kitchener, Ont., native, had two goals and 22 assists in 62 games last season. He is six-feet tall and 185 pounds.
“I like the way he moves the puck and the way he can manoeuvre on the power play,” general manager Grant Sonier said.
Laliberte was the Islanders’ second-round pick (33rd overall) in the 2012 draft. He had 13 assists in 67 games last year.
