Kent (ISN) – Seattle Thunderbirds general manager Russ Farwell today announced the team has acquired 20-year-old goalie and Victoria BC native Brandon Glover from the Calgary Hitmen in exchange for a third round pick in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft.

“Brandon is a solid goaltender who has been making steady progress throughout his WHL career,” said Farwell. “We wanted to be sure we had enough experience in goal next season and feel Brandon can provide this for us.”

“Brandon had a good playoff for the Hitmen last season and he is now skating with the Abbotsford Heat of the AHL.”
