BLAZERS ACQUIRE MOHR FROM OIL KINGS FOR BENJAFIELD
BLAZERS ACQUIRE KOBE MOHR FROM EDMONTON
Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Blazers have acquired 19-year-old forward Kobe Mohr from the Edmonton Oil Kings in exchange for 20-year-old forward Quinn Benjafield and a conditional fourth round pick in 2020.
Mohr comes to the Blazers after spending the past three seasons with the Oil Kings. In 58 games during the 2017-18 season, he had 11 goals, 17 assists and 28 points along with 64 penalty minutes.
“Kobe is an important addition to our team,” commented General Manager, Stu MacGregor. “He plays the game hard and has shown he can produce offensively. He will add to our 1999-born age group and can potentially return as a 20-year-old in 2019-20.”
Benjafield played 261 career games with the Blazers over four seasons and recorded 127 points.
“We’d like to thank Quinn for his contributions to our team over the past four seasons and wish him the best of luck in his final WHL season in Edmonton,” said MacGregor.
