Buffalo has traded defenseman Jeff Cornwall to Edmonton for two future draft picks.
The Buffalo Bandits have traded defenseman Jeff Cornwall to the Edmonton Rush for a second-round pick in the 2012 Entry Draft and a second-round pick in the 2014 Entry Draft.
The deal was announced Friday.
"This trade fits the mold of most of the other moves we made prior to the start of the season,” Edmonton coach and general manager Derek Keenan said. “Jeff Cornwall is a young, strong, fast and athletic defender. He will fit seamlessly into our defensive system.”
A native of Coquitlam, British Columbia, Cornwall was the Bandits’ second selection in the second round of the 2011 Entry Draft. The 15th overall selection had one assist, two shots on goal and seven loose balls in five games with Buffalo.
