Warriors acquire Thrower from Vancouver

Moose Jaw Warriors General Manager Alan Millar has announced that the team has acquired 19-year-old defenseman Josh Thrower and a 5th round pick in 2017 from Vancouver in exchange for 18-year-old defenseman Tyler Brown, the rights to 16-year-old defenseman Marcus Kichton, and a 2nd round pick in 2017.

Thrower, 6’1 199lbs, is from Squamish, BC and was originally selected by the Calgary Hitmen in the second round of the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.  In 40 games this season, Thrower has nine assists and 59 penalty minutes.  In four seasons in the WHL, Thrower has played in 211 games, picking up six goals, 34 points, and 279 penalty minutes.

Josh Thrower is expected to make his Moose Jaw Warriors debut Saturday at Mosaic Place against the Saskatoon Blades.
