SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Gulls announced that they have traded defenseman Sylvain Deschatelets to the Bakersfield Condors in exchange for future considerations and that they have traded defenseman Ian Forbes to Peoria in exchange for defenseman Aaron Forsythe and future considerations.

 The Gulls also traded defenseman Evgueni Nourislamov to the Idaho Steelheads in exchange for forward Brett Draney and they received goaltender Simon Lajeunesse from the Dayton Bombers, completing an earlier three-team trade that saw San Diego acquire defenseman Grady Moore while sending Trevor Koenig and Colin Shields to Atlantic City.
