Hitmen Complete Trade With Everett Silvertips
The Calgary Hitmen Hockey Club today announced they have acquired a sixth-round pick in the 2019 or 2020 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft from the Everett Silvertips in exchange for 18-year-old defenceman Jameson Murray.
“The Hitmen would like to thank Jameson for his time with the organization and wish him well in his future hockey endeavours,” said Hitmen general manager Jeff Chynoweth.
Murray was a protected list addition on Sept. 14, 2015. He made his WHL debut with Calgary and played 63 career games over parts of two seasons.
