The Winnipeg Freeze have acquired defenseman Briggs Jowett from the OCN Blizzard.
The 19-year-old from La Broquerie weighs in at 198 pounds and stands 6’ 2” tall.
The left-shot blueliner made his MJHL debut last season with OCN. He notched five assists with 113 penalty minutes in 39 games through his rookie campaign.
“Briggs is a high, high character kid,” said head coach Jay Pylypuik. “We’re all extremely excited to have him with us moving forward.”
“[His character] was the main attraction but also being able to add someone of his ability size and grit was a huge bonus.”
The Blizzard received two prospects in exchange for Jowett.
