Broncos Add Czech Forward

Here's the press release:

Broncos Make Selection in CHL Import Draft

The Swift Current Broncos used the 22nd pick in today’s CHL Import Draft to select 17 year old forward Jan Dalecky (da-LETCH-kee).

The 5’10 170 lbs. centre/winger is a native of Kladno in the Czech Republic. This past season he had 48 pts., including 29 goals, in 44 games with the Kladno U-18 team.

Dalecky, who comes from the same home town as current Broncos forward David Stieler, will join the club for Training Camp at the end of August.

So the Broncos make one selection and the jury is still out on Daniel Rakos who is not only an import but an overager too. We'll see what the plans are for the three come training camp.

It looks like Head Coach and General Manager Dean Chynoweth decided to go with a young player with the hope he can develop.

I'd like to add more but it's off the Annual General Meeting where the Broncos will announce an operating profit for the 2006/07 season. Good news.
