Spokane, Wash. — The Spokane Chiefs announced on Friday that they have traded the rights to goaltender Brett Balas to the Kamloops Blazers in exchange for a ninth-round pick in the 2021 WHL Bantam Draft.

“Thank you to Brett for his time here in Spokane. We wish him the best with the Blazers’ organization,” said Chiefs’ general manager Scott Carter.

Balas, a 2001-born netminder from Calgary, appeared in two games for the Chiefs this season, posting a 5.86 GAA and .841 SV%. He was acquired earlier this season from Prince Albert for a ninth-round pick in the 2023 draft.

The Chiefs host the Vancouver Giants on Friday, January 10 for White Claw Viva Las Vegas Trip Giveaway Night at Spokane Arena! One lucky fan will win an all-expenses-paid trip to the Entertainment Capital of the World.

Tickets for Friday and all Chiefs home games are available online or via the Chiefs’ Ticket Office, over the phone at 509-535-PUCK or in-person at Spokane Arena.
