Cranbrook, BC – Jeff Chynoweth, General Manager of the Kootenay ICE Hockey Club, today announced the club has traded 20-year-old Forward Elgin Pearce to the Medicine Hat Tigers in exchange for a fifth round pick in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft.


“With us having four 20-year-old players we knew we had to get down to the League maximum of three prior to the 20-year-old deadline on October 11th.  With numerous 1992 born players eligible to return for their overage season  we wanted to ensure  Elgin had the opportunity to play his final season in the WHL.  We would like to thank Elgin for his three years with our Hockey Club and wish him all the best in Medicine Hat,” added Chynoweth


As a result of today’s transaction, the ICE have 24 players on their roster, including two goalies, eight defensemen and 14 forwards.  Of those players, there are three 1992 born players, three 1993 born players, seven 1994 born players, nine 1995 born players and two 1996 born players. 


The next home action for the ICE will be tonight as they host the Lethbridge Hurricanes at 7:00 pm.
