Swift Current Bronco General Manager and Head Coach, Mark Lamb announced that the club has acquired 17-year-old forward, Justin Spagrud, and a conditional second round draft pick from the Victoria Royals for the rights to forward, Evan Richardson.


 
Spagrud was acquired in the 3rd round, 63rd overall by the Tri-City Americans in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft.  The 6’, 175-pound Gull Lake, SK product appeared in two pre-season games with the Victoria Royals tallying an assist.  In his 2011-12 campaign with the Swift Current Legionnaires of the SMAAAHL, Spagrud tallied 36 points (20-16-36) and 48 penalty minutes in 31 games played.
 
“Spagrud is a hometown guy,” said Lamb.  “I watched him play as much as Mackay and Wittman while with the Legionnaires.  He is a highly-skilled player who hasn’t quite reached his full potential yet, but we believe his upside is very high.”
 
Richardson was the Broncos 15th overall pick in the 2009 WHL Bantam Draft.  The 5’7”, 150-pound Nanaimo, BC product recorded 55 points (19-36-55) in 48 games played with the Powell River Kings (BCHL) last season.

Lamb announced that the club has re-assigned forwards Cavin Leth and Jordan Wittman.

Leth has been re-assigned to the Drumheller Dragons of the AJHL.  He was selected 39th overall by the Broncos in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.  The 6’, 155-pound native of Taber, AB appeared in three pre-season games with the Broncos.  In 42 games played with the Notre Dame Argos of the SMAAAHL last season, he recorded seven goals and 12 assists for 19 points.

Wittman has been re-assigned to the Swift Current Legionnaires of the SMAAAHL.  He was selected 46th overall by the Broncos in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.  The 6’, 189-pound Stewart Valley, SK product made two pre-season appearances with the club this year.  In 42 games played with the Swift Current Legionnaires last season, he tallied 17 points (9-8-17) and 26 penalty minutes.
