In exchange for McGauley the Rockets acquire an eighth round pick in the 2021 WHL Bantam Draft.

Rockets General Manager Bruce Hamilton said, “We are deep at the forward position, and we have felt we needed to make room in our lineup for some of our younger talent. We thank Colum for his time in Kelowna and wish him the best in the future.”

The 5’11, 175lb winger was a fourth round draft selection (74th overall) in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft for the Spokane Chiefs. He was acquired by Kelowna in the 8th month of 2016 in a trade that sent Tanner Wishnowski to Spokane in exchange for McGauley.

In 47 games with the Rockets in 2017/2018, the Nelson, BC. native has recorded two goals and 14 penalty minutes as well as a -2 +/- rating.
