Broncos Acquire Swift Current Native De Klerk from Spokane
Swift Current, SK - The Swift Current Broncos announced today that they have acquired 2002-born defenceman Hendrik De Klerk from the Spokane Chiefs in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2022 WHL Bantam Draft.
De Klerk, from Swift Current, spent last season here in Swift Current with the Legionnaires scoring six times and adding 31 assists for 37 points in just 44 games.
His 37 points ranked second in the Saskatchewan Midget Hockey League amongst defencemen. For his efforts, he was named to the SMHL's Second All-Star Team.
The 5'11'' defenceman has played all of his minor hockey in Swift Current, winning a bantam league championship with the AA Broncos in the 2016-17 season.
Following that year, De Klerk was drafted by the Chiefs in the seventh round, 138th overall. De Klerk signed a Western Hockey League standard player agreement on March 1, 2019.
