For the second time this season, the Lloydminster Bobcats and Calgary Canucks have agreed to a trade.
The Bobcats have acquired forward Braydon Jenkins (99) from Calgary in exchange for forward Zach Webb (98), which also completes the Pierce Diamond trade from October.
Webb was initially agreed to as the ‘Future Considerations’ to complete the Diamond trade which took place on October 3rd.
“As an organization, we appreciate and thank Zach for everything he did for us over the past season and a half,” said Bobcats Head Coach and GM Travis Clayton. “However, recently Zach expressed to me he did not feel Lloydminster was where he wanted to be any longer, so we found a way to accelerate the trade with Calgary.”
Coming to the Bobcats, Braydon Jenkins is a 5’10”, 180lbs forward, with already lots of AJHL experience at just 18 years old.
The Calgary native has posted 17 goals and 28 assists in 119 career AJHL games. Jenkins had 8 goals and 13 assists in 41 games last season and so far this year has put up 1 goal and 4 assists in 20 games for the Canucks. He spent the 2015-16 season with Okotoks tallying 8 goals and 11 assists as a rookie.
“We’re very excited to get Braydon to Lloydminster and in the mix with our hockey club,” said Clayton. “He has shown in both Okotoks and Calgary that he can help generate offence. Plus he brings a lot of experience to our team despite only being 18.”
The Bobcats will resume their regular season schedule on Friday when they host the North Division leading Fort McMurray Oil Barons.
