Broncos Strengthen Goaltending

Swift Current Broncos General Manager and Head Coach Mark Lamb has announced the club has acquired 19 year old goaltender Mark Friesen from the Chilliwack Bruins in exchange for a 3rd round bantam pick in 2010.

Friesen, from Winkler Manitoba, is in his 3rd WHL season. The 5’11” goaltender has a career goals against average of 3.21 and a career save percentage of .904 in 99 regular season and playoff games.

Head coach and general manager Mark Lamb says: “We wanted to add some experienced depth to our goaltending position. We are confident in our goaltending as Mark has nearly 100 WHL games experience. He is a quick agile goaltender.”

This is the third deal between the Broncos and Bruins since the end of the 2009 season.

Any chance he'll be dressed for tonight's game?

Haven't heard too much about this kid, but I sure hope he is the answer to pick up some road wins. Clark has played really good at home, but there must have been some concerns about the road games. Once Taz gets back into the groove, look out!
