Swift Current, SK---Swift Current Broncos General Manager and Head Coach Mark Lamb has announced the club has acquired 18 year old Kyle Verdino from the Kelowna Rockets in exchange for a 5th round bantam pick in 2011.
Verdino, from Phoenix Arizona, is a versatile player that can play either forward or defense. This season he has 5 points in 26 games.
In essence, the Broncos swap F Mike Brown for D Kyle Verdino as they use the pick they get in the Brown deal from Tri-City and move it to Kelowna for Verdino. Genius.
As for Verdino, one source tells me the Broncos get a bigger bodies, not overly physical defenseman who is just starting to play his best hockey.
