SPOKANE -- The Spokane Chiefs traded forward T.C. Cratsenberg to the Chilliwack Bruins on Tuesday for a conditional eighth round pick in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft.
The 18-year-old Cratsenberg appeared in 68 games and had 84 penalty minutes in his Chiefs career. Originally a sixth round pick in the 2007 WHL Bantam Draft, the Federal Way, WA native was in his third season in Spokane.
"Considering the dynamics of our current roster T.C. was going to have a tough time getting the ice time that he deserved," Chiefs general manager Tim Speltz said. "Hopefully he can take advantage of the opportunity in Chilliwack. We wish him the best of luck."
The move leaves the Chiefs with 24 players on their roster; two goaltenders, eight defensemen and 14 forwards.
