Bombers deal Nardone to B.C., acquire twin forwards

The Flin Flon Bombers put the finishing touches on a blockbuster summer trade June 27, sending forward Vincent Nardone west and receiving a pair of twin forwards in return.

Nardone, a 18-year-old forward originally from Rosemere, Que., was traded to the Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League. The Vees announced Nardone’s acquisition June 25.

The deal involved three teams from three different leagues. Following the transcations, the Bombers received 19-year-olds Chase and Easton Haygarth in return from the AJHL's Whitecourt Wolverines. Originally from Lloydminster, Alta., the forwards are twin brothers and each spent the past two seasons with the Wolverines. Easton, a centre, finished second in team scoring last season with 35 points in 58 games, while right-winger Chase added another 12 points in 42 games. 

In his only season with the Bombers, Nardone scored 17 goals and 39 points in 56 games, earning him an NCAA Division I scholarship to the Univ. of Nebraska-Omaha (UNO) for the 2020/21 season.

Whitecourt received the rights to Cassidy Bowes, a 20-year-old forward, from Penticton in the deal. Bowes, a player who committed to play for the Michigan Wolverines in 2020/21, finished last season with 24 points in 46 games for Penticton.
