Mississippi Sea Wolves Trade Goalie To Roanoke Express

The Mississippi Sea Wolves traded goalie Steve Briere to the Roanoke Express of the ECHL Monday in a trade for cash. The 5'8" Briere spent his first full professional season with the Sea Wolves last season.

The Winnipeg, Manitoba native played in 41 games with Mississippi, compiling a 2.88 goals against average with a .901 save percentage. He posted 19 victories, 17 losses and three shootout defeats.

Sea Wolves General Manager John Gagnon said, "The move was made to help Briere. The Sea Wolves affiliates are expected to send a couple of goalies down to Mississippi, so instead of stringing Steve along all summer, we made the trade. Roanoke expressed interest in Briere and we decided it was in the best interest of Steve to complete the deal."

Sea Wolves head coach Bob Woods said, " I think it will be a great situation for Steve." John Gagnon told WLOX that the status of the Sea Wolves other goalie from last season, Chuck Thuss, remains a big question mark. Just like Briere, Thuss could lose out because of the Sea Wolves affiliation, but nothing has been ruled out thus far.
