Prowlers Trade for Leveille & Stoia Returns
The Port Huron Prowlers have acquired forward Chris Leveille from the Mississippi Sea Wolves in exchange for Justin Portillo and future considerations in addition to defenseman Matt Stoia.
Leveille had nine points in his first four games with Mississippi at the start of the season. He’s only played three more games since October and has spent most of the season with the Hamilton Steelers in Allan Cup Hockey. The 35-year-old has two previous stints in Port Huron including winning the 2016 Commissioner’s Cup. Over his career, he has played 222 SPHL games, 97 FPHL games, 135 ECHL games and six AHL games. Most recently Portillo captained the now-defunct Vermilion County Bobcats and put up 10 points in 26 games.
The team also released Sam Gagnon and Joe Noonan.
Stoia is expected to suit up this weekend when the Prowlers return to action against the Motor City Rockers on Feb. 17 at 7:05 P.M. Leveille will join the team at a later date. Tickets are available at phprowlers.com/tickets or by calling the box office at 810-985-6166.
