With moves being made for the present and future leading up to Wednesday’ Trade Deadline in the Western Hockey League, one of the deals with eyes to the future involved a Ed Chynoweth Cup-hopeful trading with the defending Ed Chynoweth Cup Champions.
The Moose Jaw Warriors dealt 18-year-old forward Jaxan Kaluski to the Seattle Thunderbirds of the U.S. Division. A 6-foot-0, 182-pound product of Lloydminster, Alta., Kaluski made his debut with the Warriors in September 2016. Since then, he’s played in 38 games with the WHL club, totalling four points (2G-2A). He’s also added 19 penalty minutes.
“Kaluski is an honest, hardworking energy guy that’s going to give us some depth at forward,” said T-Birds director of player personnel Cal Filson.
In return for Kaluski, the Warriors received a sixth-round pick in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft.
