TRADE: Blades acquire draft pick from Kelowna for Farren

Steve Hiscock

Saskatoon, Sask. — The Saskatoon Blades have completed a trade with the Kelowna Rockets sending 2000 born forward Michael Farren to the Rockets in exchange for a 2020 3rd round draft pick.

“Michael texted me Monday morning to let me know he wasn’t satisfied with his role on the team and would be flying home to await a trade,” explained Saskatoon Blades’ General Manager Colin Priestner. “We are disappointed in Michael’s decision, but this draft pick is an asset that allows to us to improve our team if needed in the future. We wish him the best in Kelowna.”

Farren, an 18-year-old native of Surrey, British Columbia, was listed by the Blades in 2015 and signed with the team after his first camp as a 16-year-old. The 5’9″ right-winger spent the past two seasons with the Blades and is currently in his third WHL season. In 133 career games with Saskatoon, Farren had 20 goals, 57 points, and a -31 rating.
