The Melville Millionaires acquired 2001-born defenseman Jackson Bohan from the Humboldt Broncos in exchange for a pair of draft picks and a Player Development Fee.
Bohan has spent the last two seasons with the Broncos after making the team following a year with the KIJHL’s Kimberly Dynamiters, a Junior B program in BC.
Once in Humboldt, Bohan quickly established himself as an offensive threat from the blueline, accumulating 29 points (5g, 22a) in 49 games. His 29 points led all rookie defensemen in the SJHL and landed him a spot on the SJHL All-Rookie Team. In his sophomore season with the Green and Gold, Bohan added two more assists across six games before the season was shutdown due to the COIVD-19 pandemic.
The draft picks coming back to the Broncos include two second rounders, one in the upcoming SJHL Bantam Draft and one the following year. The Broncos now have seven of the first 35 picks in the next draft.
Bohan, meanwhile, is expected to slot right into the top-4 of the Millionaires defense corps for his 20-year-old season.
