The Truro Bearcats made a pair of trades over the weekend.

Twenty-year-old American defenseman Jacob Evans was acquired from the Virden Oil Capitals of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

The Bearcats then traded for 18-year-old American forward Jaden Hewes from the Melleville Millionaires.

Both players were acquired for future considerations.

Truro sits in fifth place in the Eastlink South Division with a record of 8-10-2-4, but went 6-2-2-0 in November.
