Winterhawks Grant Players Temporary Loans

The Portland Winterhawks have granted eight players temporary loans to play with Junior-A and Junior-B clubs while the Western Hockey League is still on pause due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Portland’s two import players Simon Knak and Jonas Brøndberg are playing overseas in their home countries and Carolina Hurricanes first-round draft pick Seth Jarvis will be skating at Hockey Canada’s National World Junior Team Selection Camp.
