Chiefs deal Marantz after Kramer’s return


It didn’t take the Spokane Chiefs long to clear up their overage situation.

A day after forward Darren Kramer was returned from Ottawa, the Chiefs traded forward Matt Marantz to Lethbridge for a fourth-round pick in the next bantam draft.

Kramer gave the Chiefs four 20-year-olds and Western Hockey League rules only allow a team three. With a deadline early next week to get to three, the Chiefs moved. The other 20-year-olds are forward Steven Kuhn and defenseman Corbin Baldwin.

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