Swift Current, SK: The Swift Current Broncos remain busy when it comes to shaping out their roster for the 2018-19 campaign as the club has come to terms with 2018 CHL Import selection Roope Pynnonen, signing the Finnish blue liner to a Standard Player Agreement.
With the 119th selection, the Broncos used it to select defenceman Pynnonen. The 17-year-old Pynnonen played the majority of his 2017-18 campaign in the Jr. B SM-sarja league with the HPK U18 squad. The 5’10”, 183lb rear guard posted two helpers in 16 games.
In 2016-17, the product of Tampere, Finland served as an alternate captain for the Ilves U-16 team of the Jr. C SM-sarja Q in which he registered 14 points (5g-9a) in 17 games.
With the signing of Pynnonen, the Broncos now have both of their 2018 CHL Import picks under contract after having signed Finnish forward Joona Kiviniemi last week.
