Warriors deal Kaluski to Thunderbirds for draft pick
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.
