From the Hitmen Office:
The Calgary Hitmen Hockey Club has acquired a fourth round pick in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft from the Regina Pats in exchange for 20-year-old defenceman Jesse Zgraggen.
“With the return of Alex Roach, this move meets the league’s three over-age player allowance,” said Hitmen General Manager and Vice President, Business Operations Mike Moore. “We wish Jesse all the best in his final WHL season and thank him for his efforts in Calgary.”
Zgraggen, a native of Lethbridge, Alberta, recorded four goals and 15 assists for 19 points along with 46 penalty minutes in 47 games with Calgary.
The Hitmen acquired the 6-1, 210-pound defenceman from the Victoria Royals in January 2013.
