The Swift Current Broncos sent one of their longest-tenured players to Medicine Hat this afternoon for a trio of draft picks.

Swift Current acquired the 42nd overall selection in the WHL Prospects Draft today, a conditional third-round pick in 2027, and a fourth-round pick in 2028 from the Tigers for Ward.

The Kamloops product skated in 199 regular season games amassing 73 goals and 135 assists for 208 points in a Broncos jersey.

Swift Current selected Winnipeg defenceman Calum Brownlee with the 42nd pick.

The 5-foot-11 15-year-old recorded 29 points for the Winnipeg Bruins U15 AAA Black in 32 games this past season.
