The Swift Current Broncos announced today they have acquired 2000-born forward Brecon Wood and a conditional eighth-round pick in the 2021 WHL Bantam Draft in exchange for the rights to 2003-born forward Ashton McNelly.

 Wood, from Edmonton, spent the majority of the 2018-19 season with the Seattle Thunderbirds, skating in 46 games and scoring three goals and five assists.

He also appeared in seven games with the Moose Jaw Warriors, scoring once, and four games with the AJHL’s Spruce Grove Saints, recording two assists.

Originally a seventh-round pick of the Warriors in 2015, the 6’2’’ forward has played in 137 WHL games to date, scoring eight goals and seven assists.

McNelly was drafted by the Broncos in the 10th round, 216th overall in 2018.
