Pats Get D-Man From Kelowna

Regina Pats General Manager, Chad Lang would like to announce the acquisition of 19 year old defenceman, Colton Jobke as well as a 2ndround pick in the 2012 and a 5th in the 2013 WHL Bantam drafts in exchange for 18 year old defenceman Myles Bell.

Colton is entering his 3rd season in the WHL and has signed a 3 year entry level contract with the Minnesota Wild. The Delta, BC native played in 51 games with the Kelowna Rockets last season, collecting a goal and 9 assists.

Regina Pats General Manager, Chad Lang “Colton has spent three years in a quality, successful program in Kelowna and his play has earned him a pro contract with the Minnesota Wild. He will provide leadership and a steadying presence on our blue line.”

What a great trade for someone who might not play junior hockey again. Well done Chad!!

Kelowna must think Bell will be able to come back and play at the level he was before the incident. That's a steep price.
