Notre Dame high school alumnus Van Eger has been assigned by the Western Hockey League’s Swift Current Broncos to the Junior Hounds.
Eger, a 2005-born forward, spent three years between 2019 and 2022 in Wilcox, and was a key piece of the Hounds U18AAA that made it to the U18 National Championship in 2022.
He is a native of Willow Bunch, SK.
We have re-assigned two players to Junior A clubs.
The Broncos will retain both players WHL rights.
