SPOKANE, Wash. The Spokane Chiefs announced on Thursday that they have acquired goaltender Declan Hobbs from the Kootenay ICE in exchange for a seventh round pick in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft.

Hobbs, a 1998-born goalie from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, was originally a third round pick by Kootenay in 2013 WHL Bantam Draft. He played the majority of last season with the Nipawin Hawks of the SJHL, posting a 1.94 GAA and .929 SV% in 13 appearances. In 29 WHL games with Kootenay spread over three seasons, he earned a 4.88 GAA and .866 SV%.
