Lakers acquire Baldwin


Jace Baldwin, a former menace to the Muskies, has been brought back to the Borderland area—this time on the Canadian side.
Baldwin, who was raised across the river in International Falls, was acquired by the Fort Frances Lakers from the Steinbach Pistons of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League yesterday.
The Lakers sent future considerations to complete the deal.
Baldwin used to play for the International Falls Broncos’ hockey team—an arch-rival of the Muskies in exhibition and tournament play.
In 60 games last season with the Pistons, the 5’11”, 155-pound forward netted four goals and 19 points to go along with 95 penalty minutes.
“We have spoke with Jace and hope he is excited as we are to have him in the lineup for next season,” said Lakers’ head coach Wayne Strachan.
“Jace will bring added skill to our forward ranks, as well as grit.
“[He is] a player that likes to get under the skin of the opposition,” Strachan noted.
