Pats transactions (aside from the Hutt deal)

From Greg Harder's Slap Shots....

: To make room for Eberle and Hutt, the Pats are shipping D Dominic Perrault (North Battleford, SJHL) and C Lucas Froese (Winnipeg Saints, MJHL) to the junior A ranks. Perrault, 18, didn’t fit into the plans on defence. He was a healthy scratch for the first three games of the season before seeing some action as a forward on Sunday night with the team short-handed up front. Froese, 17, dressed for two games, but has arguably shown more upside — and certainly more skating ability — than a handful of players who’ve seen regular action so far. The smart money says we haven’t seen the last of Froese, who has potential as a checking/energy player . . . The Pats' roster in now set (barring more injuries or trades) with 24 players: 14 forwards, eight defencemen and two goalies.
