Lethbridge, AB – The Lethbridge Hurricanes swung a multi-player deal Tuesday sending Reid Duke, Macoy Erkamps and prospect Tak Anholt to Brandon for 18 year old’s Ryley Lindgren, Kord Pankewicz and Brett Kitt.
5’11, 194 pound Centre Ryley Lindgren, the Wheat Kings 5th round Bantam pick in 2011, has played 75 games for Brandon with 19 points (9G, 10A). Lethbridge Hurricanes General Manager, Brad Robson likes Lindgren and what he can bring to the hockey club. “He’s a good, hard-working and gritty two-way centre.
