The Kenai River Brown Bears acquired forward Jordan Paine just before Wednesday’s North American Hockey League trade deadline.
Paine, at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, comes to the Brown Bears from the Texas Tornado. He has a 1994 birthdate, which means he has two more years of junior eligibility after this year.
“He has a decent compete level, he’s very skilled and he has tons of upside,” said Nick Shackford, the Bears director of player personnel. “He should be an impact guy next year, but this year, he should contribute, too.”
