The Langley Rivermen have acquired veteran goaltender Tyrell King as part of a three-way trade.

The Rivermen get the 20-year-old goaltender from the Kindersley Klippers of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. The Klippers get defenceman Joel Webb from the B.C. Hockey League's Trail Smoke Eaters. And the trade is completed with Rivermen defenceman Viktor Dombrovskiy heading to Trail.

The 18-year-old Dombrovskiy spent two seasons in Langley and had four goals and 28 points in 90 games. He also represented Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge in 2013 and is committed to Yale for the 2015/16 season.

King is a six-foot-one, 180-pound goaltender who went 23-13-3 with a 2.16 goals against average and a .930 save percentage this past season.

He also had four shutouts.

"He's an excellent goaltender and super competitive who has proven himself as a starter in Saskatchewan the past two seasons," said Rivermen coach and general manager Bobby Henderson.

"We're excited to bring him to Langley as a guy who can carry a big load in goal for us."
