A unanimous decision was made during the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League's (SJHL) annual general meetings in Nipawin, to have the Humboldt Broncos organization select one player from each teams roster.

On Monday afternoon, a list of those players selected by the Broncos was provided by the SJHL in a press release, which saw the Estevan Bruins make arrangement with Humboldt to work out a "future considerations" type deal according to Bruins Head Coach and General Manager, Chris Lewgood.

"We were able to nail down the final parameters which gave us about 72 hours to come up with our list of players to make available," Lewgood explained. "One of the key components was that players could be selected from last years roster of returning players."

The SJHL will not be providing those player availability lists to the public, and have not released any specific details regarding if a certain age or position was to be required on those lists.

After much thought and deliberation, the Bruins brass was able to work out a deal with the Broncos that will see the hockey club move a player to the Broncos when they see a fit for both sides.

"It's not going to be a situation where they select a player, we essentially worked out a future considerations type trade. It was important to us to protect our hockey club, our culture in our dressing room is very strong and we wanted to make sure that we held the cards in a sense as far as who we would lose."

"Just as important, we wanted to make sure that we work with the Broncos to make sure that they get at least one quality hockey player out of our program and system. To do that we have some different variables on recruiting and whatever else we need to look after. Ultimately there's going to be some good hockey players that aren't playing with us this season and we will be able to work something work with the Broncos."
