Broncos Acquire Darragh

The Swift Current Broncos have swapped 18 year-old forwards with the Chilliwack Bruins.

They've sent 18 year-old Matt Ius to the Bruins for 18 year-old Liam Darragh.

The move is a good one for Ius who can be close to home while he attends to a family matter.

Chilliwack is the closest possible destination for Ius. Good to see the Broncos made this happen for him.

Good luck Matt.
