KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has traded forward Nikita Krivokrasov to the Prince George Cougars. In return, the Americans acquire a conditional 8th round pick in the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft.
“With 16 forwards on the roster we needed to reduce numbers. This gives Nikita an opportunity to play in the Western Hockey League,” stated Tory. “We wish him nothing but the best.”
Krivokrasov was originally signed by the Prince Albert Raiders in 2016. The Westminster, CO native joined the Americans during training camp after playing last season for the Corpus Christi IceRays of the NAHL. He totaled two goals, two assists, and thirteen penalty minutes in eleven games with the Americans.
