Carson Denomie is heading close to home following a deal between the Kamloops Blazers and Moose Jaw Warriors Thursday afternoon.
With the Western Hockey League Trade Deadline approaching, the Warriors acquired the 18-year-old product of Regina, Sask. in exchange for a seventh round selection in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft.
“We’d like to thank Carson for his contributions to the Kamloops Blazers and wish him the best in Moose Jaw,” commented General Manager, Matt Bardsley.
The 6-foot-0, 195-pound Denomie was originally selected in the fifth round, 100th overall, by the Blazers in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft.
He made his WHL debut September 22, 2017 with the Blazers and later scored the first goal of his WHL career October 21, 2017.
This year, Denomie has four points (1G-3A) in 36 games. Overall, he has 23 points (7G-16A) in 102 WHL regular season games, including one game-winning goal.
Denomie is a product of the Regina Pat Midget AAA Canadians where he recorded 46 points (16G-30A) in 44 games, helping his team capture the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League Championship in the 2016-17 season. He also added 10 points (4G-6A) in 11 games and was named to the second all-star team.
The Warriors are in action Friday, January 11 (7:00 p.m. CT), hosting the Seattle Thunderbirds. Denomie won’t have to wait long to face his new team as the Warriors begin a bi-annual road trip through the B.C. Division against the Blazers on Tuesday, January 15 (7:00 p.m. PT) at the Sandman Centre.
