Rockets add 20-year-old forward

Kelowna acquires Chance Braid from Prince George prior to trade deadline

The Kelowna Rockets have rounded out their roster for what they hope will be a championship run.

On Friday, the eve of the WHL trade deadline, the Rockets acquired 20-year-old Chance Braid from the Prince George Cougars.

In exchange for Braid, the Rockets have sent the Cougars the CHL rights to forward Brogan O’Brien, a 10th round WHL bantam pick of the Rockets in 2012.

“We only had 12 forwards and we wanted to add another veteran player to our group and Chance is a big, physical player,” said Rockets president and GM Bruce Hamilton.

A native of Chauvin, AB, Braid has played 236 career Western Hockey League games including three seasons with Prince Albert before joining Prince George this year.

In 35 games with the Cougars this year the 6-foot-1, 210 pound left winger has eight goals and five assists along with 42 penalty minutes.
