The Kootenay ICE added some grit and energy to their forward corps, Friday, by acquiring 18-year-old winger Cameron Hausinger from the Red Deer Rebels.
In exchange for the 1999-born forward, Red Deer receives a fourth-round pick in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft.
“Cameron brings a level of intensity, compete and energy that will help our entire group,” said Matt Cockell, President and General Manager of the ICE. “We see him as a versatile player in our line-up that fits well with what we are trying to do today and in the future (as a 1999 born player).”
The Rebels acquired the Anchorage, Alaska product in a deal with Saskatoon Blades in November last season.
Hausinger posted 15 points (7G-8A) in 61 games between Red Deer and Saskatoon in 2016-17.
He also notched one goal in seven playoff appearances last year.
In 119 career WHL games, the 5-foot-10, 188-pound forward has posted 13 goals and 13 assists.
He was drafted by the Blades in the seventh round, 135th overall in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft.
