Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - The Brandon Wheat Kings have traded 18-year-old defenseman Ty Ettinger to the Vancouver Giants. 

In exchange, the club receives a 7th-Round draft pick in the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft. 

Originally selected by the Wheat Kings in the fifth round (95th overall) in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft, Ettinger has suited up in 46 career games with Brandon. Last season he dressed in 45 games and registered two goals, five assists, 47 penalty minutes and a +10 rating.

Brandon has the day off Monday before returning to the ice in preparation for a mini two-game Saskatchewan road trip that opens Friday in Moose Jaw.
