Minneapolis, MN - Fresh off their loss to the Icedogs in the WHL Cup Finals, rumors swirl around the league as to whether team captain, Jay Bouwmeester, is on the move. A source close to the club stated that the team has discussed the young defenseman with a couple of WHL GMs but nothing has been confirmed. The source went on to say that the team is accepting offers for Bouwmeester, looking for another defenseman as well as prospects and/or draft picks in WHL15.
"Jay is a great player and has yet to fulfill his potential," stated GM LaDouceur. "I have no comment as to whether we're going to move Jay but all I can say is that he's 25 and has the potential to reach 60 points real soon - as a defenseman no less. We value his play and for us to move him it'd have to be a great deal for us."
