Brandon, MB. – The Western Hockey League’s Brandon Wheat Kings have announced that 17-year old forward Bode Hagan has been traded to the Swift Current Broncos.
In exchange for the Alsike, Alberta product, the Wheat Kings receive a sixth round selection in the 2021 Bantam Draft.
Today’s move comes on the heels of last night’s deal that saw the Wheat Kings acquire 6’3” 215 lb. right-winger Reid Perepeluk from the Prince George Cougars for left-winger Jonny Hooker.
As a result of this week’s moves, the Wheat Kings have 22 players on their current roster – 2 goalkeepers, seven defencemen and 13 forwards.
An eighth round selection of the Wheat Kings in the 2017 WHL draft, Hagan had four assists and six penalty minutes in eighteen games this season.
The Wheat Kings expect to have Perepeluk in the lineup tonight when they play host to the Red Deer Rebels at Westoba Place.
Brandon enters the game riding a season high five game winning streak.
