And just saw on the EDM Oil Kings Twitter that they moved Klarcy Wilson to the P.A. Cougars for a 2014 3rd Round Pick. I guess with the addition of Cheek they had to shorten the roster a bit and Klarc was the same kinda player as Cheek, with not as great scoring tough. Best of luck in Prince George Klarcy!.
Cheek isn't going to add toughness to the Oil Kings. And he is absolutely nothing like Klarc Wilson. Wilson adds toughness. Cheek adds scoring. Two completely different players. The Cheek trade makes sense for the Oil Kings. Moving Wilson doesn't, IMO. Then again he probably wasn't going to make the team next year as an overager. So I'm guessing that had something to do with the deal.
