Chiefs break 20 longjam, trade Marantz

It didn't take the Spokane Chiefs long to clear up their over-age situation.

A day after Darren Kramer was returned from Ottawa they traded Matt Marantz to Lethbridge for a fourth-round pick in the next Bantam Draft.

Kramer gave the Chiefs four 20's and Western Hockey League rules only allow a team three. With a deadline early next week to get to three, the Chiefs moved.

"We felt it was good for the Chiefs and Matt Marantz to get this deal done as soon as possible," general manager Tim Speltz said. "Lethbridge is excited to have him join their team. Matt was an important piece to our organization the last two years. We wish him all the best in Lethbridge."

Marantz was one of eight Chiefs with at least 20 goals last season, finishing with 20 goals and 22 assists and was a plus-21 in 68 games. In his first season he had two goals and three assists in 40 games.

The other 20-year olds are forward Steven Kuhn and defenseman Corbin Baldwin.
