Daily Dose of the Dub: Broncos acquire Svenson from ICE, ICE assign Gurski to Blues and more

Broncos acquire Svenson from ICE

The Swift Current Broncos have acquired forward Justin Svenson from the Winnipeg ICE for a conditional ninth-round pick in the 2021 WHL Bantam Draft. Originally a third-round pick of the Red Deer Rebels in 2017, Svenson has suited up for 19 WHL games, all with Red Deer, and has yet to register a point. The ICE acquired Svenson from Red Deer as part of the monster trade that sent Cam Hausinger and Brett Davis to Red Deer. He’s currently playing in the MJHL for the Winkler Flyers where he has four goals and 14 assists in 15 games.
