Cranbrook, BC – Jeff Chynoweth, General Manager of the Kootenay ICE Hockey Club, today announced the Club has traded for 19-year-old Forward Zach McPhee from the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a conditional seventh round draft pick in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft.
“With our need to add bodies to our roster we felt Zach would be a great fit. He is a veteran player who will bring size and versatility to our line up with his ability to play both centre and right wing,” added Chynoweth
As a result of today's transaction, the ICE have 23 players on their roster, including two goalies, seven defensemen and 14 forwards. Of those players, there are two 1992 born players, four 1993 born players, seven 1994 born players, eight 1995 born players and two 1996 born players.
The next home action for the ICE will be tonight as they host the Saskatoon Blades at 7:00 pm. Tickets are available at the Kootenay ICE Office or by calling 250-417-0322.
