Head Coach and GM of the Flin Flon Bombers Mike Reagan has made a huge splash ahead of the January 10 trade deadline.
The Weyburn Redwings send 19 year old Captain Cade Kowalski to the Flin Flon Bombers in exchange for 19 year old Dawson McKenzie and future considerations.
Kowalski (Morden, MB) had a standout rookie season with the Weyburn Red Wings, notching 11 goals and 49 assists for 60 points in 58 games. This earned him the SJHL Rookie of the Year Honors, and also caught the eye of the NCAA Division 1 schools.
“Anytime you have the opportunity to land the best player available you have to be excited about it.” - Mike Reagan, Bombers HC & GM
Kowalski has committed for the 2019-2020 season to Ferris State in Big Rapids Michigan in the WCHA Division 1 conference.
Leaving Flin Flon is 19 year old Dawson McKenzie (Winnipeg, MB). In 88 games with the Bombers, McKenzie has 15 goals and 35 assists for 45 points. Dawson is a former alumni of the Winnipeg Thrashers of the MMHL, which currently has 5 players on the Bomber roster.
The Flin Flon Bombers would like to thanks Dawson for his time in Flin Flon, and wish him success in his future.
