KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has acquired 18-year-old left defenseman Aidan Lawson from the Edmonton Oil Kings for a conditional 8th round pick in the 2020 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.
The 6’5 and 200-pound defenseman has spent the last two seasons with the Edmonton Oil Kings. In 62 games played, he has totaled one goal, six assists, and eleven penalty minutes.
