As the Tri-City Americans were drafting for the future Thursday, general manager Bob Tory dealt a piece of the past, trading goaltender Ty Rimmer to the Lethbridge Hurricanes for a pair of draft picks.
Rimmer, who would have been one of eight overage players in camp this fall, said he foresaw the move.
“I knew what the overage situation was,” said Rimmer, who was named Western Conference Goaltender of the Year. “I have mixed emotions leaving Tri. I had a lot of fun there and it was an amazing season with what we accomplished and the individual success we had. I will miss Tri and all the great people there. Lethbridge is four hours from home, which is a plus. This will be a good opportunity.”
Rimmer finished his one season with the Americans with a 31-12-1-1 record, a 2.43 goals against average, .922 save percentage and five shutouts, all of which led the league.
