Spokane, Wash. — The Spokane Chiefs announced on Thursday that they have traded forward Connor Gabruch to the Calgary Hitmen in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft.

“We would like to thank Connor for his time in Spokane and wish him the best in Calgary,” said Chiefs’ general manager Scott Carter. “This deal will provide Connor a new opportunity while allowing us to bolster our upcoming bantam draft class.”

Gabruch, a 2001-born forward from Saskatoon, Sask., was originally listed by the Chiefs in 2016. In 84 career games, the 6-foot-4 winger has scored six goals and seven assists for 13 points. He also appeared in two playoff games for Spokane last season.

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.
