Prior to squaring off on the ice on opening night last Friday, the Napanee Raiders and Picton Pirates came together to work out a trade.

Headed over the Skyway Bridge to the county was Griffen Conger while Bailey Matthews became a member of the Raiders.

Napanee also received a player development fee in the deal. Both players are forwards.

Conger, a native of Deseronto, spent two seasons with the Raiders. Last year he had 21 goals and 20 assists in 39 games played.

Matthews, a native of Stirling, had six goals and 10 assists with the Pirates last season. Prior to suiting up for Picton he was a product of the Quinte Red Devils AAA organization.

While neither player did any damage against his former team in Friday’s opener, Matthews did pick up an assist in Napanee’s 10-0 win over Port Hope.
