Phaneuf to P.E.I

The Prince George Cougars released Edmonton Product Dane Phaneuf 2 weeks ago, but now the former South Side Athletic Club member has found a new home out east.

Marcel Vander Wier has the details of the deal here.

It was a depth issue for the Cougars and the young blueliner was waived through the WHL. That has worked out for someone recently, as Jacob De Serres also went through the WHL waiver wire and ended up with a Memorial Cup ring in Saint John.

This fall when Dane played for the Cougars in the Oil Kings pre-season tournament I ran into Dion and we chatted about P.E.I as his family has roots there so the comfort level should be pretty high for Dane.
