The Regina Pats and Kootenay ICE struck a deal Monday afternoon, sending 17-year-old goaltender Carter Woodside to the Queen City.
In exchange, the Kootenay ICE received a conditional 8th round pick in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft.
Woodside, a 6-foot-0, 161-pound product of Asquith, Sask., was originally a sixth round pick, 111th overall, by the ICE in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft.
“We are really happy to acquire Carter,” said Pats General Manager John Paddock. “He will add some needed depth at the goalie position to our organization.”
Woodside played the 2017-18 season with the Prince Albert Mintos of the SMAHL. In 21 appearances he went 15-5-0 with a 2.53 goals against average and a .900 save percentage. In the playoffs, he appeared in three games, going 2-1 with a 1.69 goals against average and a .940 save percentage as the Mintos went to the league final against the Notre Dame Hounds.
The condition on the trade is based on the number of games played for Woodside during the 2018-19 season.
