The Iron Horse Kindersley Klippers have been busy making transactions and one of the team’s new acquisitions made his presence felt in a win on Saturday.

The Klippers acquired a pair of forwards last week and the team split a pair of home games at the same time. Kindersley hosted the Melfort Mustangs on Nov. 14 and Weyburn Red Wings on Nov. 17 at the West Central Events Centre (WCEC).

Melfort won a close game by a score of 3-1, but Kindersley bounced back with a 6-2 win over Weyburn on Saturday. Ty Enns, a 20-year-old forward, is the newest Klipper and he played in the win over Weyburn. The newcomer scored a goal and added a pair of assists to make an immediate impact for his new team.

The Klippers acquired Enns from the Bonnyville Pontiacs of the Alberta Junior Hockey League in exchange for a Player Development Fee. Enns had 18 points (5G, 13A) in 23 games with the Pontiacs this season. He also picked up four penalty minutes in the Weyburn game.
