Chiefs Trade Riley McKay to Saskatoon for Two Draft Picks

Larry Brunt

Spokane, Wash. — The Spokane Chiefs announced on Thursday that they have traded forward Riley McKay to the Saskatoon Blades in exchange for two picks in the WHL Bantam Draft. The Chiefs will receive Saskatoon’s fourth round pick in the 2019 draft and seventh round pick in the 2020 draft.

“It’s always a very tough choice to trade away a player like Riley,” said Chiefs’ general manager Scott Carter. “We feel this will give him the opportunity to play a bigger offensive role, which he has earned. He has been a great representative for our organization and we wish him the very best in Saskatoon.”

McKay, a 19-year-old winger from Swan River, Man., leaves Spokane after 113 games played over two seasons, scoring seven goals and 15 assists for 22 points to go along with 275 penalty minutes. He led the Chiefs in penalty minutes for each of the last two seasons, including 152 during the 2017-18 campaign. McKay was originally listed by Spokane in 2014.
