Aces Trade for Playoff Run as Sharks Look to Rebuild

Aces Trade for Playoff Run as Sharks Look to Rebuild

April 23rd, 2021

The Manulife Macau Aces have traded defenseman Matthew Sackney to the Scotiabank South China Sharks for U18 forward rookie of the year candidate Ryan Chu.

The Aces just bolstered their chances to win the CIHL championship this year with the addition of scoring sensation Ryan Chu. Ryan in his first full year with the CIHL is tied with teammate Jacob Pentz for most goals.

With the Sharks almost all but eliminated from the playoffs, general manager Ben MacAskill is looking to next year with a rebuild for the Sharks after a disastrous season - one full of injuries and missed opportunities. Matthew will be a welcomed addition to the Sharks who are known to be one of the best defensive teams in the CIHL.

The CIHL 2020 - 2021 trade deadline is April 24th, 2021.
