The Swift Current Broncos and Kelowna Rockets have swung a summer deal that sees Colum McGauley sent to the defending WHL Champions.
In exchange for McGauley, the Rockets receive 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.”
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound winger was a fourth round selection (74th overall) in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft for the Spokane Chiefs. He was acquired by Kelowna in October of 2016 in a trade that sent Tanner Wishnowski to Spokane.
In 47 games this season with the Rockets, McGauley recorded two goals.
