The Drumheller Dragons have acquired the rights of forward Brayden Jenkins ('99) from the Okotoks Oilers for future considerations.
From Calgary, AB, Jenkins played last season with the Oilers as a 16-year-old where he tallied 8 goals and 11 assists in 57 games. Jenkins brings speed and a scoring touch to the Dragons roster and the organization looks forward to having him in a Dragons uniform.
“We feel very fortunate that we were able to acquire Brayden,” said Dragons head coach and GM, Brian Curran. “We made this deal as we lost a couple of our young forwards due to injuries but most importantly I have watched Brayden play and I like the way he competes. He should fit in very well here, and I look forward to working with him.”
Jenkins will be in the lineup tomorrow (September 23) for the Dragons Home Opener vs. the Mustangs at 7:30pm. The annual Home Opener Tailgate Party will precede the game and has been moved indoors to the BCF field house due to the weather.
