The Victoria Royals are pleased to announce that the club has traded for forward Greg Chase, along with a fifth round draft pick in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft and a eighth round draft pick in the 2016 draft from the Calgary Hitmen. In exchange the Royals have sent defenceman Keegan Kanzig and a second round pick in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft to the Hitmen.

“Greg Chase is dynamic and skilled player who can provide offense at an elite level in this league,” Royals’ General Manager Cameron Hope said. “We are looking forward to his arrival.”

“Saying goodbye to Keegan is especially difficult,” Hope said. “He has been a big part of this team since the franchise drafted him. We can’t thank him enough for his contributions to the Victoria Royals, on-and-off the ice and we wish him every success.”
