The Swift Current Broncos roster has one fewer defenceman on it now.

Eighteen-year-old Sam Pouliot was released after appearing in five games this season. He was held off the scoresheet during that time.

His 20-year-old brother, and fellow defenceman, Ryan Pouliot was cut by Swift Current earlier this season. He's now playing with the Vancouver Giants.

Swift Current acquired Sam Pouliot from the Red Deer Rebels for a conditional 10th-round draft pick in 2020 just before the season

With the move the Broncos are down to eight blueliners including the injured Artyom Minulin.

Swift Current's next game is Friday night in town against the Spokane Chiefs.
