Layne Toder is the newest member of the Dauphin Kings. The 20-year-old from Elkhorn was acquired in a trade on Tuesday from the Portage Terriers.
The biggest piece going back to Portage is Cole DeKoninck. Joining DeKoninck going Portage's way is Dylan Winsor and Noah Wagner.
Toder broke on to the junior scene in the 2016-2017 season with Portage where he scored 11 times and added 17 assists in 44 regular-season games. He would then score one more goal and he added eight more assists in 18 playoff games that season.
Following that year, Layne made his way to the Western Hockey League where he played 173 games (including playoffs). He tallied five goals during that time and chipped in with 25 assists. He was an 85th overall selection by the Hitmen in the 2015 WHL U-15 Draft.
Dauphin also receives a 2021 2nd round pick and future considerations.
So far this season in six games, Layne had two assists for a Portage team that is currently 2-3-0-1 and is at the bottom of the Interior Division.
Heading into this weekend, Dauphin plays a home-and-home against the OCN Blizzard and Darnell Duff has Friday's broadcast beginning at 6:45 with the Parkland Source for Sports pregame show.
