Rockets press release on new goalie

The Kelowna Rockets would like to announce they have acquired goaltender Warren Shymko from the Tri City Americans in exchange for a ninth round bantam draft pick in 2010.

Shymko, 17, was originally drafted by Tri City in the 2007 WHL bantam draft. A native of Calder, Saskatchewan, he has played the past two seasons of midget hockey in Saskatoon.

Rockets president and general manager Bruce Hamilton said it was a move to bring in depth in net for the Rockets.

"With the uncertainty with Mark Guggenberger’s injury, we needed to get another guy in here," said Hamilton. "We felt we needed to bring someone in that could get some playing time while Mark is on the sidelines."
