The Cornwall Colts have added forward depth in a trade that brought Tommy Tanner from the Calgary Canucks of the AJHL, in return for a player development fee.

The 19-year-old Montreal-born forward spent the past three seasons playing for Kent School in the USHS, where he collected 40 points in 66 games before joining the Canucks to begin the 2017-18 season.

"He’s my kind of player," says Colts coach Ian MacInnis, of the 6 ft., 175 lb. forward. "He brings a two-way, gritty style every shift."
