KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans Governor/General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has traded 18-year-old forward Max Moline to the Lethbridge Hurricanes in exchange for a conditional 5th round pick in the 2013 Bantam Draft.
Moline, listed at 6’3 and 195 pounds, played his first full WHL season last year with Tri-City, appearing in 53 games and totaling four points and 42 penalty minutes. The Lethbridge, Alberta-native was originally a 5th round (110th overall) pick by Tri-City in the 2008 Bantam Draft and spent the 2009-10 season with the Lethbridge Y’s Men Hurricanes, finishing 6th on the team in points (20) and earned an invite to Hockey Alberta’s U-17 camp.
“Max is a quality kid and this move will allow him to play closer to home in front of his family and friends,” explained Tory. “We wish Max all the best in Lethbridge.”
