The Waterloo Black Hawks have acquired defenseman Brehdan Engum from the Central Illinois Flying Aces in exchange for Michael Ferrandino.
Engum has played parts of two seasons for Central Illinois, including ten games in 2018/19. A left-handed shot, Engum stands at 6-feet-3-inches and weighs in at 213 pounds, complimenting Waterloo’s size on the blue line.
Before making his way to Central Illinois, Engum skated for the Burnsville Blaze in Minnesota high school hockey. The Black Hawks have a long line of successful stars who made their way to the Cedar Valley from Burnsville, including Brock Boeser, Tyler Sheehy, Eddie Wittchow, and Tyler Barnes.
Ferrandino was in the lineup for Waterloo during 115 regular season games beginning in 2016/17. He recorded 24 assists, including one this year in ten appearances.
The Black Hawks are on the road this weekend, visiting the Chicago Steel and the Green Bay Gamblers.
