Moose Jaw, SK: The Moose Jaw Warriors today announce that they have acquired 18-year-old right wing forward Thomas Frazee for a conditional 5th round pick in 2009.
Thomas joins the Warriors after spending a season with both the Medicine Hat Tigers and the Portland Winter Hawks. The 6’3 195 lbs forward was originally drafted by the Winter Hawks in the 1st round (11th overall) in the 2005 WHL Bantam Draft.
He is an individual who brings experience along with the potential to contribute offensively. He also helps address our 18 year old age group an area we wanted to increase.” stated Warriors General Manager Chad Lang.
With the abundance of forwards something had to give, and frazee was the odd man out. Good move IMO.
