Kjell Kjemhus is on his third team in less than a year, but the 17-year-old forward is hoping that he’s found a home with the Moose Jaw Warriors following Monday’s trade.

"I've bounced around a bit but I feel this is a fresh start for me," said Kjemhus. "I'm excited to get going, I feel I'll fit in well here with the guys and I'm really pumped."

Kjemhus arrived in the Friendly City on Tuesday and will make his Warrior debut on Wednesday night along with 19-year-old forward Luke Ormsby, who was also acquired in a separate trade on Monday.

Kjemhus played 30 games with Prince George after being acquired from the Regina Pats as part of the Jesse Gabrielle trade at last season's trade deadline.

The Grand Prairie, AB product is hoping that he's done changing teams and can start building his WHL career with the Warriors.

"I know a couple of the guys on the team here already, so I'm extremely pumped and looking to get going," said Kjemhus.

"I just met the coaching staff and all the members of the team and they're all good guys so far, and that’s where a good team starts off, good guys in the room and a good coaching staff, so I think we’re going to do well."

In 36 career games split between Regina and Prince George, Kjemhus has two goals and six points. He said he plans to bring a hard-nosed style to the Warriors.

"I like to skate hard, get on the forecheck hard and play defence well," said Kjemhus. "I feel like I'm a character player, I like to bring some energy to the ice and I feel like I suit that role and can help the team out."

The Warriors start their week by hosting the Medicine Hat Tigers at Mosaic Place on Wednesday night. The Pre-Game Show hits the air at 6:40 p.m. on Country 100.

Raiders' Streak Ends Tuesday

The Prince Albert Raiders have been practically unbeatable all season and they were riding a 19-game winning streak heading into Tuesday night's game against the last-place Swift Current Broncos.

Led by 52 saves from goalie Joel Hofer, the Broncos ended the Raiders' streak with a 3-2 shootout win at the Credit Union Iplex.

Ethan Regnier scored the game-tying goal with 1:44 to go in regulation and then he scored the lone goal in the shootout to secure the win.
