A former Cape Breton Eagle draft pick may soon find a new home in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

According to Robert Lagacé of L'Acadie Nouvelle in Bathurst, N.B., the Acadie-Bathurst Titan will acquire goaltender Tommy Da Silva from the Gatineau Olympiques in exchange for defenceman Zachary Racicot.

The teams did not officially confirm the trade as of press time.

Da Silva, a second-round draft pick of the Eagles in 2017, has been traded three times in his QMJHL career. He was dealt to Saint John from Cape Breton in January 2018, before being traded to the Olympiques in January 2019.

The 19-year-old has played 24 games in the QMJHL and currently holds a 6.44 goals-against-average and a .840 save percentage.

As for Racicot, he has appeared in 25 games in the QMJHL, all with the Titan, and has yet to record a point.
