The holiday embargo on player transactions in the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League has been lifted.
And Hockey News North has confirmed that the Timmins Rock has traded 2003 birth year defenseman Chris Innes to the Rayside Balfour Canadians in a cash exchange.
The 6 foot, 180 pound defender had suited up for just three games for Timmins this 2020-2021 NOJHL season and had one assist.
Prior, Innes played in 10 NOJHL games in 2019-2020 — one with Timmins and nine with the Cochrane Crunch — after being a 12th round pick of the Sarnia Sting at the 2019 Ontario Hockey League priority selection draft. He spent most of the 2019-2020 season with the Sudbury Nickel Capital Wolves of the Great North Under 18 Hockey League where he produced four goals, 21 assists, 25 points in 31 games.
Innes originally hails from Moose Factory, Ontario.
