Minor Shakeup in Brnoby Ogie Oglethorpe | December 14, 2016, 10:58 AM ET
The Brno Barons, unhappy with the inconsistent play of their back up netminder made a move this week to strengthen that position. Brno sent a second round pick to Vancouver for back up Chad Johnson. GM Mayhugh stated that " We needed some new blood back there. Jhonas just wasn't working out. He is a great individual but didn't provide the answer to what we needed in a back up goalie. Johnson gives us a little more confidence that we will be in a good place if we need to fill in for Neuvirth." There were some rumblings around the league that too much was given up for Johnson to which Mayhugh responded "I'm really not concerned about what the other GM's think. I may have been out of the game for a bit, but trust me, I know what I'm doing...maybe."
After the trade for Johnson, the Barons shipped Enroth out to Brandon for the Wheat Kings 5th round pick in the 2017 draft.
