Chilliwack deals Holowenko

The Chilliwack Bruins announced late Thursday that they have acquired 18-year-old defenceman Emerson Hrynyk from the Prince Albert Raiders in exchange for goaltender Cole Holowenko.

In 50 games with the Raiders over the last two seasons, Hrynyk scored twice, added four assists and was plus seven.

He will help bolster a Bruins blueline that has been hurt by injuries and inexperience.

Jesse Pauls has been knocked out for the season and Zach Habscheid remains sidelined with a knee injury.

In Holowenko, the Raiders get a once promising goaltending prospect whose star has dimmed.

Holowenko was a second round bantam draft pick in 2008, but failed to crack the roster in two training camps.

He appeared in two regular season games last year with a 6.01 goals-against average.

Hrynyk will make his Chilliwack debut tonight against Portland.
