The Spokane Chiefs have traded defenceman Jordan Chudley to the Tri-City Americans for a ninth-round pick in the 2022 WHL Prospects Draft.

The teams announced the deal Monday.

Chudley, who hails from Souris, Man., played two seasons in Spokane, recording two assists and in 57 regular season games. Originally a fourth-round WHL Draft pick by the Kootenay ICE in 2016, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound rearguard has appeared in 91 career WHL contests, registering four points.

Meanwhile, the Prince Albert Raiders have acquired 17-year-old forward Hayden Pakkala from the Winnipeg ICE in exchange for a ninth-round pick in the 2021 WHL Prospects Draft.

In his last full campaign in 2019-20, Pakkala had 34 goals and 58 assists in 35 games in his first season at the U16 AAA level with Okotoks in the Alberta Minor Midget Hockey League (AMMHL). He added three goals and eight assists in five playoff games for the Oilers.
