The Melfort Mustangs have acquired 2002-born forward Braden Plaschewsky from the Canmore Eagles of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) in exchange for a Player Development Fee.
Plaschewsky, a product of Calgary, Alta., spent most of last season with the Eagles, playing in 44 regular season games, scoring seven goals and adding four assists for 11 points. He also played 11 games with the Spokane Chiefs in the WHL, scoring one goal.
“Braden will definitely bring a veteran presence to our lineup,” said Mustangs Head Coach and General Manager Trevor Blevins. “His experience in the WHL will be a huge asset for our group. He will play a key role in our forward group.”
The 6’2”, 205lbs forward really hit his stride in the 2022 AJHL playoffs with the Eagles, scoring three goals and adding six assists in 11 games. That was good for a tie for third on the team during their postseason run.
Plaschewsky previously spent two full seasons with the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL, playing in a total of 86 games, tallying five assists.
Plaschewsky was also the 31st overall pick by the Blades in the 2017 WHL Draft.
