Saskatoon, SK - The Saskatoon Blades acquired their second third-round pick of the 2024 WHL Prospects Draft on Thursday. The Blue and Gold traded for the Kelowna Rockets 61st overall pick (previously owned by the Medicine Hat Tigers) in exchange for a 2025 fourth-round pick (previously belonging to the Everett Silvertips) and a 2027 third-round pick (previously owned by the Spokane Chiefs). The deal was struck moments after the Blades acquired the Kamloops Blazers 2024 third-round pick.
