St. Catharines Saints trade Komer to Owen Sound for Masters
"We are extremely thankful for the time Scotty spent with us last season. He was a big part of our success in winning the Presidents Cup and we wish him luck in the future" said Saints GM Dave Colbourne.
Scott Komer is a seasoned veteran who should get the opportunity to be a starter with the North Stars after backing up Jake Henhawk in 2013. With an obvious look to the future, adding 24yr old Ryan Masters the Saints get a lot younger in net.
Colbourne had this to say about Masters."We are very excited to add Ryan to our team. He is a young goaltender with a very bright future. We expect him and Jake to give us a very strong goalie tandem heading into the 2014 season"
Komer shared the league’s top goaltender award with Jake Henhawk in 2013 when he posted a 5-2 record and 7.29 goals against average. The 36-year-old Komer didn’t appear in the playoffs as Henhawk carried the load.
Masters, 24, posted a winning record for the 6-10 North Stars, going 3-2 with a goals against average of 9.46.
The trade is actually a swap of teammates, as both goalies suited up for some games with the Major Series Lacrosse Brampton Excelsiors in 2013. Masters went 1-3 with a 10.17 GAA with Brampton while Komer was 0-4 with a 13.59 GAA.
The Sr B season gets under way at the end of April.
