Broncos shuffle forward ranks ahead of return to action

The Swift Current Broncos made a couple roster moves as they prepare to return to the ice this week.

Monday, they announced that they had released  veteran forward Jordan Borysiuk. The 2002-born Mannville, AB product had one assist in 28 games this season. Borysiuk came to the Broncos in a 2019-20 trade that sent Ben King to the Red Deer Rebels. He had eight points in 57 career Western Hockey League games. 

The Broncos next announced that they had signed 2004-born forward Ty Hurley and that he would be joining the team immediately. The Sherwood Park, AB native was drafted 84th overall in the 2019 WHL Prospects Draft. He has one goal and five assists in 27 games with the Sherwood Park Crusaders in the Alberta Junior Hockey League this season.

“We are excited to add Ty to the roster,” said Broncos interim general manager Chad Leslie. “Ty is an intelligent player that plays with pace and thinks the game very well.He has some offensive upside to tap into down the road, and will be a player that canplay a number of different roles for us when he gets his feet wet.”

The Broncos are slated to visit the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Wednesday, their first game since  Dec. 28 after five games were postponed due to COVID-19.

The Broncos are currently eighth in the Eastern Conference standings with a 13-15-3-1, four points ahead of the Hurricanes.
