The Philadelphia Wings traded forward Chris Cloutier to the Buffalo Bandits on Wednesday. In exchange, the Wings have received defenseman Ryan Wagner and a 2021 NLL Draft first-round draft pick.

Wagner joins his third NLL franchise, as he previously also played for Vancouver. Cloutier will be joining his second franchise.

Cloutier was the Wings second overall selection in the 2018 NLL Draft. This season, he had seven goals and 17 assists for 24 points.

“This was a very difficult decision, but as an organization moving forward we thought it’s the best for not only the Philadelphia Wings, but for Chris,” Day said. “Ryan is a fast, physical defenseman and has played for our defensive coach Ian Ruble. We needed some help defensively and we’re able to acquire a very good athlete who’s only 24 and already has quite a bit of experience in the league.”

This season, Wagner played in four games for the Bandits. He had 14 loose balls, 3 caused turnovers and 1 shot.

In 2018, his first season with Buffalo, he had 15 appearances. He had one goal and 10 assists for 11 points with 2 PIM. He had one power-play assist, one short-handed assists, and one game-winning goal.

He also had 77 loose balls with eight turnovers, 15 caused turnovers, and 11 shots.
