Swift Current, SK: The Swift Current Broncos have acquired 20-year old, 1996 born forward Ryan Graham from the Saskatoon Blades in exchange for a second round draft pick in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft along with a conditional fourth round selection in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft.
The native of Calgary, AB has skated in 11 games for the Blades this season, recording five points (1g-4a) and will provide depth up front for the Broncos lineup.
“Graham is a player we have had our eye on since the beginning of the season,” said Broncos Head Coach and Director of Player Personnel Manny Viveiros. “He is a skilled player that we are very excited about and he will help our hockey team. We’re happy to have him on board.”
The 6-1, 204 lb forward was selected by Saskatoon in the fifth round, 91st overall in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft and has amassed 116 points (59g-57a) in 248 career games.
Graham will make his debut against his former club on Tuesday night as the Broncos get set to host the Saskatoon Blades at the Credit Union i-Plex. Puck drop is 7:00pm CT.
