The 2024 CHL Import Draft took place on Wednesday with the Swift Current Broncos making the 50th and 110th overall selections.

The Broncos used their first pick to select 2006-born defenceman Adam Král from Liberec Bili Tygri Jr. in Czechia. Král (6'-2", 181 lbs.) scored six goals and 19 points in 50 games with his club team last season and appeared in 25 international games for Czechia at the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup and IIHF Men's U18 World Hockey Championship.

“Adam is a big body defender who skates well,” general manager Chad Leslie said in a press release. “He has represented his country on the international stage and will be a guy that should fit into a top four pairing and log a lot of minutes for us."

The Broncos selected 2007-born forward William Morin from Sweden with their second pick of the draft. Morin played 41 games with Luleå HF J20, scoring 14 goals and 28 points, and also appeared in six games for Sweden at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in 2024.

“William has a good frame, and has offensive upside,” Leslie added. “His lack of physical strength is dictating for him at this point, and I feel there is a lot of ceiling left in his game.”

The Broncos also announced on Wednesday they have released 2005-born forward Petr Pavelec. He scored two goals and five points in 47 games with the Broncos last season.
