The Colorado Eagles may not be playing any games at this time, but they are busy making deals and finalizing trades. The Eagles announced that they have completed the trade they made last summer with the Allen Americans. They traded one of our veterans, defenseman Erik Adams, to them for future consideration. They now have agreed upon rookie defenseman George Bradley.
Bradley is from Burlington, Ontario, and played as a rookie for Allen Americans in their last six games. The Americans won the Central Hockey League’s Southern Conference championship and went on to play Rapid City Rush for the President’s Cup. They lost four games to two, but forced them into seven games to lose in overtime.
Eagles’ assistant coach, Greg Pankewicz, who helped complete the trade, stated: "First and foremost, he's a quality kid with great character, and that's the type of player we look to bring to Northern Colorado. He's a steady, hard-working defenseman whom we're excited to bring into the fold."
Bradley is 6-feet-2-inches and weighs in at 210-pounds, which keeps the defensive line big and strong to remain a force to be reckoned with in Northern Colorado.
Before joining the Allen Americans, Bradley played five seasons at Brock University and was named the Badgers’ captain for the last year.
The Colorado Eagles will continue to work hard during the summer to ensure a tough lineup for the upcoming season.
