Dubuque Fighting Saints announced they have acquired defenseman Carson Vance from the Muskegon Lumberjacks.

The Saints received Vance by trading forward Charlie Combs to the Lumberjacks.

Vance, in his second full season in the USHL, has totaled 20 points (5 goals, 15 assists) in 65 games, with 2 assists this season. The Tempe, Ariz. native played for the Youngstown Phantoms and Chicago Steel before joining Muskegon this season.

“Carson has elite skating ability, and he can really move pucks,” Fighting Saints general manager Jason Lammers said. “We know what type of person we’re getting, which is really important. It’s something we value very much.”
