“It is tough to move a young player like Trevor, but with the depth that we have on defence, this move will allow him an opportunity to play regularly in Lethbridge,” Blazers’ GM Matt Bardsley said in a press release. “We thank him for his time in Kamloops and wish him all the best going forward.”

The Blazers picked Thurston, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound Delta product, in Round 4 of the 2017 bantam draft.

Kamloops has 23 players on its roster, including two goaltenders, seven defencemen and 14 forwards.
