The Western Hockey League’s six East Division teams were busy in the days and hours leading up to this season’s trade deadline.

Most were acting as buyers as they prepare for a playoff run that could eventually land them in Regina to play as the league representative for the Memorial Cup.

As the tournament hosts, the Regina Pats already have a guaranteed spot in the Canadian Hockey League championship week.

Here’s a list of the most important trades made by those six teams during the 2017-18 WHL regular season. The season’s trade deadline was Jan. 10 at 4 p.m. CST.
