For the third time in the last four days, two defenceman are traded for each other as the West Kelowna Warriors added veteran 20-year-old Braden Pears and future considerations from the Trail Smoke Eaters for 19-year-old Zane Schartz.
For Pears, it's the Victoria product's sixth BCHL stop after previously playing for Powell River, Salmon Arm, Coquitlam, Victoria and Trail.
For Schartz, it's his third BCHL stop this season and fourth overall. The native of Plano, Texas was recruited by Surrey, posted very solid numbers and was moved to Brooks of the AJHL back in October. The Bandits then flipped Schartz to West Kelowna in November, where he wasn't able to post the same type of offensive numbers he did in his previous stops.
