Broncos Deal Tyler Adams to Thunderbirds for Prospect MacKenzie Wight

Swift Current, SK – The Swift Current Broncos have acquired prospect forward MacKenzie Wight from the Seattle Thunderbirds in exchange for veteran forward Tyler Adams and a conditional pick in 2019.

Wight has skated in 12 games for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs of the BCHL, notching nine points (5g-4a) before skating in six contests with the Thunderbirds. The 17-year-old product of Burnaby, BC was originally selected by the Thunderbirds in the 7th round, 148th overall in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft.

“We are excited about MacKenzie’s potential,” said Director of Player Personnel Manny Viveiros. “He’s a player that we think can contribute to our hockey team down the road.”

Adams skated in 25 games for the Broncos this season, collecting seven points (1g-6a) to go along with a plus-2 rating. The native of Regina, SK recorded 20 points (7g-13a) in 97 career WHL contests, all with Swift Current.

“We’d like to thank Tyler for everything he did for our hockey club over the past two seasons,”┬ámentioned Viveiros. “His commitment to the Broncos was exceptional and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

Swift Current hosts the Prince Albert Raiders for the first game of a back-to-back on Friday, December 16th at 7:00pm CST.
