Seattle brings in another Moose Jaw forward
— Seattle Thunderbirds (@SeattleTbirds) October 30, 2018
11 days after leaving the Moose Jaw Warriors and heading home to Spruce Grove to play in the AJHL with the Saints, left wing Brecon Wood has been traded.
The 2000-born forward was acquired by the Seattle Thunderbirds in exchange for a seventh-round WHL Bantam Draft pick in 2020.
The left-handed Wood was originally a seventh-round pick in 2015 by Moose Jaw.
He played in 91 regular season and seven playoff games for Moose Jaw, notching five goals and two assists for seven points.
Seattle acquired another forward in Jaxan Kaluski from Moose Jaw last year for a sixth-round pick in 2019.

Moose Jaw Warriors defenseman Josh Brook was named captain of Team WHL for their two games against a Russian team that includes Red Deer Rebels blue liner Alexander Alexeyev.
Portland’s Cody Glass, Lethbridge’s Jordy Bellerive and Everett’s Connor Dewar all were named assistant captains.
This quartet stands a strong chance of earning an invite to Hockey Canada’s U20 World Juniors camp in December.
