Winterhawks acquire Ty Westgard
The Winterhawks have acquired 18-year-old forward Ty Westgard from the Victoria Royals in exchange for a conditional pick in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft.
The 190-pound forward was originally drafted by the Royals in the eighth round, 165th overall during the 2013 WHL Bantam draft. Westgard has only dressed two games for Victoria this season due to an injury, but was able to score his first WHL goal in those two games. The White Rock, B.C. native has skated in 23 career WHL regular season games, scoring one goal and three assists.
