This is being reported by Gregg Drinnan but not released by the Broncos yet.... here's what was posted overnight:

"Portland and Swift Current made a deal late Wednesday that will have D Travis Bobbee, 19, move from the Winterhawks to the Broncos for D Eric Doyle, 20.

A source familiar with the situation said there may also be draft picks involved, but indicated those two players are the main pieces in the exchange.

Bobbee, from Arborg, Man., was selected by the Lethbridge Hurricanes with the 15th overall pick in the 2005 bantam draft. This season, he has eight points in 28 games.

Portland acquired Bobbee two years ago, along with D Ryan Kerr, F Jacob Dietrich and F Nick Dietrich -- yes, they are brothers -- for F Colton Sceviour, F Nick Hotson and D Lucas Alexiuk.

Doyle, from Calgary, was picked by the Everett Silvertips with the 15th selection of the 2004 bantam draft. He has 16 points in 21 games this season.

Everett dealt Doyle to Swift Current in January 2007, getting back F Jordan Mistelbacher, D Dane Crowley and a conditional 2008 third-round draft pick.

Portland had room for a 20-year-old after trading G Kurtis Mucha to the Kamloops Blazers on Monday for a 2010 fourth-round draft pick.

Doyle joins F Chris Francis and F Stefan Schneider as Portland’s 1989-born players.

The Broncos had to make a move as the return of F Matt Tassone from offseason shoulder surgery left them with four 20-year-olds, the other two being F Michael Stickland and D Derek Claffey."


I'll have the info once the Broncos confirm and green light this.
