Gawdin resigns with Flames


Former Swift Current Broncos captain Glenn Gawdin will continue to chase down his National Hockey League dream after resigning with the Calgary Flames. The 22-year-old forward signed a one-year, two-way contract for $700,000.

The Richmond, BC native was named an American Hockey League All-Star this season after leading the Stockton Heat with 47 points in 53 games. Gawdin had totalled 38 points in 64 games with the Heat in his debut professional season in 2018-19.

The 6’1’’, 190-pound forward was originally drafted by the St. Louis Blues in 2015 but signed as a free agent with the Flames in 2017.

Gawdin was a first round pick of the Broncos in 2012 before playing parts of six seasons in Swift Current. He captained the Broncos to a league championship in 2017-18 when he was second in league scoring with 125 points before adding 32 points in 24 post-season games on his way to WHL Playoff MVP honours.
