Broncos Trade Wagner to Winterhawks

Swift Current Bronco General Manager and Head Coach, Mark Lamb has announced that the club has traded veteran forward, Dillon Wagner to the Portland Winterhawks in exchange for Winterhawks’ prospect forward Adam Smith.

Smith was selected 178th overall by the Portland Winterhawks in the 2009 WHL Bantam Draft.  The 6’2”, 180lbs. product of Nanaimo, BC has played in six games with the Nanaimo Clippers of the BCHL so far this season where he has recorded one assist.  Last season, he tallied three points (1G, 2A) in 30 games played with the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the BCHL.

Wagner will be leaving Swift Current after playing over three seasons with the Broncos.  He was drafted 125th overall by the Broncos in the 2006 WHL Bantam Draft.  In 163 games played so far in his WHL career he has recorded 28 goals and 25 assists.

“Through this trade we have added a ’94 born player to our team,” states Bronco General Manager and Head Coach, Mark Lamb.  “It is tough to say good bye to Wagner as he has been with the Broncos for such a long time and has been a big part of the team’s foundation, but this is an incredible opportunity for him as Portland has a very strong team and will likely go far this season”.

The Swift Current Broncos Hockey Club would like to wish Dillon Wagner all the best in his future endeavours!
