The Seattle Thunderbirds added Brecon Wood to their talented forward group Tuesday afternoon in a trade with the Moose Jaw Warriors.
In return, the Warriors received a seventh-round selection in the 2020 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.
Wood , a 6-foot-2, 184-pound product of Edmonton, Alta. was originally selected by the Warriors in the seventh round, 140th overall, of the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft. Wood made his WHL debut on September 23, 2016 and scored his first career WHL goal with the Warriors on March 5, 2017.
In 91 WHL regular season games, all with Moose Jaw, the 17-year-old Wood has recorded seven points (5G-2A). He’s also appeared in seven career WHL playoff games.
“We are excited to add Brecon to our roster,” said Thunderbirds general manager Bil La Forge. “He has good offensive upside and will provide depth up front.”
The Thunderbirds are in action Tuesday, October 30 (7:05 p.m. PT) when they had east to take on the Spokane Chiefs. The Warriors return to the ice Friday, November 2 (7:00 p.m MT) when they welcome the Saskatoon Blades to Mosaic Place for the first time this season.
