The Merritt Centennials have completed a trade with the Nipawin Hawks of the SJHL.
The Cents have sent defenseman Colten Gerlib to the Hawks in exchange for future considerations. Colten Gerlib tallied 12 points in 44 games last season, and was held off the score sheet in 2 contests this year. Gerlib was acquired by the Centennials last season before the BCHL Showcase, and has spent time with the Surrey Eagles and Tri-City Americans of the WHL in his junior career.
The Centennials continue the regular season without Gerlib on Friday night against the Penticton Vees.
