KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has traded 2002-born right winger Kaden Kohle and a seventh-round pick in the 2020 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft to the Vancouver Giants.

In exchange, the Americans will receive 2002-born left winger John Little and a sixth-round pick in the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft.

“John is a player we have followed since his draft year,” stated Tory. “He had a tremendous season last year in the BCHL where he put up impressive offensive numbers. We feel that there is untapped offensive upside to his game.

“We would like to welcome John and his family to the Tri-City Americans.”
