To make room for some younger talent on the roster, the Kelowna Rockets have sent forward Colum McGauley to the Swift Current Broncos.
In exchange for the 18-year-old forward, the Rockets acquire an eighth round pick in the 2021 WHL Bantam Draft.
“We are deep at the forward position, and we have felt we needed to make room in our lineup for some of our younger talent,” said Rockets general manager Bruce Hamilton. “We thank Colum for his time in Kelowna and wish him the best in the future.”
