After a half-season stint in the northern capital, Jackson Zloty is headed to Mantioba.
The Prince George Spruce Kings are shipping the 20-year-old to the Swan Valley Stampeders on Tuesday (Oct. 6), marking the second time in two months the clubs virtually shook hands on a trade deal.
In August, the Kings swapped Haydn Delorme to the MJHL squad in exchange for future considerations, which is also what Prince George will be receiving to complete Zloty’s deal.
The Calgary product was picked up by the red, white and blue at the 2019-20 trade deadline on Jan. 10 having scored 15 points in 41 games in Alberta’s junior ‘A’ league.
Zloty, in 17 regular-season games with Prince George, only tallied two assists.
He also wasn’t at Spruce Kings’ 2020-21 extended training camp that started on Friday (Oct. 2).
The team, after city council recently approved the reopening of the Rolling Mix Concrete Arena on Monday (Oct. 5), is set to welcome the Merritt Centennials for a pair of exhibition games on home ice.
They’re set to square off on Oct. 25 and Nov. 7, while also enduring six other cohort games on the road in Merritt, Trail and Cranbrook.
