Broncos Set for CHL Import Draft
The Broncos are planning on making two selections in Tuesday's CHL Import Draft. They will pick 31st and 91st overall.
In talking to Head Coach / GM Mark Lamb, the plan is to hold on to Finnish G Joni Ortio who may at some point report next season. The Broncos are able to transfer him over to a list which would not affect their quota of two import players on their roster.
They are also able to hold on to F Stepan Novotny given is over-age status.
"If you get a chance to grab a player who's good it's not going to matter if he's a goaltender, forward or defenseman. You can't pass him up," commented Lamb who is going through his first ever CHL Import Draft.
"We want to get a real good player at #31 that's committed to coming over and playing."
The Prince George Cougars hold the #1 pick overall.
