Head Coach and General Manager Mike Reagan is pleased to announce the acquisition of 1995 born forward Joel Kocur (Edson, AB) from the Whitecourt Wolverines of the AJHL in exchange for 1996 Lance Yaremchuk (Prince Albert, SK).
Kocur, playing in his second season with the Wolverines, has 17 points (8g, 9a) in 22 games this season to go along with 4 penalty minutes. He played in 60 games last year with Whitecourt and finished up with 36 points (11g, 25a) and 40 penalty minutes.
This is the second deal in with the Wolverines in as many days as the team acquired forward Brandon Switzer from the club yesterday. Switzer and Kocur were line mates this season in Whitecourt.
Yaremchuk had only appeared in three games with the Bombers since his re-assignment from the Prince George Cougars of the WHL. He had three points (1g, 2a) with Flin Flon this season.
