Lethbridge Hurricanes General Manager and Head Coach Rich Preston announced today that the Canes have acquired forward Matt Marantz from the Spokane Chiefs in exchange for a 4th round pick in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft.
Marantz, a 91-born, 6’0” 190 pound forward and is a Calgary native who joins the Hurricanes from the Chiefs with 109 WHL games under his belt. Last season he had a breakout season, posting 42 points (20G, 22A) in 68 games with 62 PIMs and a +21 plus/minus rating.
