Another Habscheid is headed to Chilliwack.
Defenseman Zach Habscheid, a Bronco bantam draft pick in 2007 has been traded to the Bruins for a 4th round bantam pick in 2010.
The Broncos selected Habscheid with their last pick in the 2007 bantam draft (9th round, 184th overall)
He spent last season with the Home Hardware "AAA" midget Legionnaires.
Zach's dad Marc was introduced two weeks ago as the Chilliwack Bruins Head Coach/General Manager.
This trade comes as no surprise. The Broncos get good value for the young defenseman who never cracked the Broncos line-up. Habscheid showed strong improvement over this last season with the Legionnaires though.
I think the Broncos are getting some good value out of this as they in essence trade up four rounds in the bantam draft.
Still playing the waiting game with the Broncos regarding Friday's news conference. It was the talk over at the Elmwood Golf Club last night as to what the announcement could be.
Until its made official, there will be a lot of speculating going on. From all accounts, Friday morning is going to be very interesting.
Wish I could say more, but honestly I don't know enough at this point....
