As some of you know, former Omaha Lancer forward Brett Bruneteau had become unhappy in Omaha and asked for a trade. Today he was dealt to the Indiana Ice for 2nd round NHL draft pick, Nico Sacchetti.
I think this makes sense for both parties involved. Hastings grants Bruneteau his trade and acquires a solid play maker in return. Indiana receives a 3rd year forward who can come in and help them lead the team and he should get a shot to see top line time, and Hastings avoids sending him to a West division rival.
It will be odd seeing a Bruneteau not playing for Omaha, as the Bruneteau's have a long history with the Lancer franchise.
Also, here is the Indiana release.
