KENT, August 18, 2015 – Seattle Thunderbirds general manager Russ Farwell today announced the team has traded right wing Calvin Spencer to the Swift Current Broncos for a conditional sixth round selection in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft.
“We want to wish Calvin all the best with Swift Current,” said Farwell. “He has become a real solid two-way forward and penalty killer. But we simply had to make room or some younger players heading into the season.”
Last season Spencer played 67 games and had five goals and eight assists for 13 points. In his rookie season in 2013-14 Spencer had three goals and three assists for six points in 32 games.
