Spirit trade Berard, acquire VanBuskirk

The Saginaw Spirit today picked up 19-year-old goaltender Parker VanBuskirk from the Sarnia Sting for overage forward Ryan Berard.

“The Saginaw Spirit organization is proud to welcome Parker to our family,” stated Spirit GM Don Edwards. “He has played more than 70 games in the Ontario Hockey League. With that kind of experience, he adds depth to our goaltending corps.”

VanBuskirk is a native of Windsor, Ontario and spent two seasons with the Sarnia Sting. During the 2005-06 season he posted a record of 6-16-1-1 in 30 games, with a .887 save percentage. He tallied a .900 save percentage last season with a record of 25-13-3-3 in 48 games and also had two shutouts.
