SPOKANE, Wash. – The Spokane Chiefs announced today the acquisition of goaltender Jayden Sittler and a fifth round draft pick from the Lethbridge Hurricanes in exchange for two selections in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft.

“We are excited to add a goaltender of Jayden’s caliber to our roster,” said Chiefs’ General Manager Tim Speltz. “Jayden has great experience and is a quality person who will also be a big part of our leadership group.”

Sittler, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound native of Red Deer, Alberta, played 39 games with the Hurricanes last season, posting a 2.94 goals against average and .905 save percentage with one shutout. In 70 career WHL games – split between Lethbridge, Victoria and Kootenay – the 1996-born netminder has a 3.24 GAA and .903 SV% with two shutouts. He added two playoff appearances during the 2016 WHL Playoffs, allowing just 3 goals on 50 shots over 102 minutes.

In the trade, the Spokane receives Sittler and a fifth round pick (107th overall) while sending Lethbridge a third round (52nd) and seventh round (140th) pick.

All included draft selections are for the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft.
