Broncos Sign Arnold

Brandan Arnold

The Swift Current Broncos made a roster move just before the start of the rookie game (which is tied at 1 as I write this) by signing F Brandan Arnold. The 16-year-old Dodsland, SK product is listed at 5’7 and 151lbs. He’s small in stature but made an impression at camp with his intelligent play and pure skill.

Arnold put up 23 points in 41 Midget AAA games with Tisdale last season. His production sagged a bit in the second half after a strong start.

The Broncos picked Arnold in the 7th round of the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft so he has reached above his draft position just by getting signed. Now he has an opportunity to play exhibition and prove he belongs at the WHL level this season. One way or another he is certainly a guy who is now in the team’s plans if he can follow through and develop the way they expect.

After the first period of the rookie game Arnold has a point as he assisted on Zac Mackay’s PP goal. Julius Honka is also in the lineup and impressive people with his ability to control the puck. It’s exhibition but it’s fun to see all the skill out there for Swift Current.
