Thunderbirds acquire King

By Matt Stefano

The Soo Thunderbirds have added some veteran experience to their blueline on Wednesday by acquiring the rights to 1998 birth year defenceman Braden King from the Cochrane Crunch in exchange for a player development fee.

King, a native of Sudbury, Massachusetts, played with the Cochrane Crunch from 2016-2018, scoring 3 goals, 11 points and 77 penalty minutes through 64 games.

King, who stands 6’1 and 185 lbs, was also drafted by the Pittsburgh Vengeance in the 6th round (268th overall) at the 2017 NA3HL Draft.
