January 9, 2018 - Western Hockey League (WHL) - Kelowna Rockets
The Kelowna Rockets announced today they have traded defenceman Konrad Belcourt to the Prince Albert Raiders.
In exchange for Belcourt the Rockets acquire a fifth round pick and an eighth round pick in the 2019 WHL Draft.
"This was a situation where Konrad wanted more playing time, so he asked to be moved. We felt in order to give him that opportunity this was our best option. We thank Konrad for his time with the Rockets and wish him all the best in the future," said Rockets President/GM Bruce Hamilton.
The 5'11, 157lb D-man was a fourth round draft selection in the 2015 WHL Draft for Kelowna.
In 64 games split between this season and last, Belcourt recorded one goal and three assists for four points. He also took part in eight post season games last year with the Rockets.
The Rockets are back in action on Wednesday night when they host the Spokane Chiefs at Prospera Place. The Rockets will be honouring gold medal champions Dillon Dube and Cal Foote prior to puck drop on Wednesday night. Puck drop is at 7:05pm.
