The Calgary Hitmen have acquired the rights to 17-year-old forward Quinn Olson from the Prince Albert Raiders in exchange for 17-year-old forward Bryce Bader.
The deal, announced before the Western Hockey League’s trade deadline on Thursday, also sees the teams swap conditional sixth-round picks in the WHL Bantam Draft.
“Olson is highly skilled forward who we believe can be a very good player in our league,” Hitmen general manager Jeff Chynoweth said in a release. “We are excited to start the recruitment process with the goal of having Quinn play for the Calgary Hitmen.”
Olson is playing with the Okotoks Oilers of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. He has 17 goals and 25 assists in 35 games with the Oilers this season, and is currently on a 10-game point-scoring streak.
Olson is also a Calgary minor hockey grad, having played with the Calgary Bisons of the Alberta Major Bantam Hockey League and Calgary Buffaloes of the Alberta Minor Midget Hockey League.
Bader had four goals and no assists in 10 games with the Hitmen this season.
Calgary returns to action on Friday in Saskatoon against the Blades.
