The Spokane Chiefs announced Friday that they traded goaltender Donovan Buskey to the Prince Albert Raiders in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2020 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.

Buskey, a 2000-born netminder out of Vancouver, B.C., played 22 games for the Chiefs during the 2017-18 season, posting a 3.56 goals-against average and .871 save percentage with one shutout. He appeared in four games as a 16-year-old during the 2016-17 season.

The roster move leaves the Chiefs with three goalies: 19-year-old Dawson Weatherill, 19-year-old Bailey Brkin and 16-year-old Campbell Arnold.

“Donovan has been an outstanding representative for our organization,” Chiefs general manager Scott Carter aid. “We had a decision to make with our goalie depth which led to this trade. Donovan will a have good opportunity to compete for minutes in Prince Albert and we wish him nothing but the best moving forward.”
