Los Angeles Kings prospect Lukas Paric appears set to join the WHL’s Spokane Chiefs, according to player agent Allan Walsh. Paric was drafted by the Chiefs with their first-round pick in Thursday’s CHL Import Draft. He spent the majority of last season with Bili Tygri Liberec U19 of the Czech U-19 league, where he posted a 2.85 GAA and .917 save percentage in 32 games.
The Chiefs currently have three goaltenders signed for the 2019-20 season: overage goaltenders Bailey Brkin and Reece Klassen, as well as 17-year-old Campbell Arnold, who has played two games for the Chiefs since being chosen in the second round of the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft. It’s reasonable to expect the Chiefs to move at least one of their overage netminders before the start of the 2019-20 season.
