The Swift Current Broncos moved F Dakota Odgers to the Vancouver Giants today for a 5th round bantam draft pick. You can click here for my story from Swift Current Online. You can also click here for the Vancouver media perspective on the deal. Here is some audio with Broncos Coach/GM Mark Lamb on the deal and some other subjects…

Best of luck to Dakota. He was nothing short of a class act anytime I’ve dealt with him. I hope Vancouver turns into a great spot for him.

    I was reading an article in the “Vancouver Province” about this trade Shawn. That article quoted odgers saying “he had discussions to be moved out of swift current?” Is this purely due to a lack of ice time? I do think Lamb is right when he sais “we have alot of same players”. To me, that sais we can afford to give odgers a better opportunity without hurting our team. Just curious if there was a different struggle with odgers or is this purely a move that Odgers wanted, just to get more ice time?

      I think it was probably something both sides were comfortable with for those reasons alone. Nothing personal just opportunity. Lamb also wanted to get both imports in and Odgers is not at a point in his career he’d be happy sitting
