Americans pick up two defensemen
Monday, the Americans acquired Defenseman Jackson Romeril from the Kelowna Rockets in exchange for a fourth pick in the WHL 2023 Prospects Draft. Romeril, who is in his first year in the WHL (born in 2005) has played in 32 games this year for the Rockets and has one goal and 9 assists.
They also traded a second-round 2025 WHL Prospects Draft pick to get Defenseman Ethan Peters from Edmonton.
