Jr. K-Wings acquire Flood from Chicago

The Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings have announced the trade of forward Matt Cessna to the Chicago Hitmen in exchange for forward Brandon Flood.

Flood comes to Kalamazoo after 23 games on the season with Chicago. The NAHL rookie from Mason was second on the Hitmen in scoring with 17 points (eight goals, nine assists). Flood also lead the Hitmen with 57 penalty minutes.

The Jr. K-Wings gave up the 18-year-old Cessna in the two-team deal. In 19 games on the campaign, Cessna tallied two goals and two assists.

Kalamazoo head coach Marc Fakler is excited with the new addition to the roster, as he is anticipating even more production from his offense.

“Brandon is a talented offensive player that has a track record for scoring goals,” said Fakler.

Flood is set to wear No. 26 for the Jr. K-Wings and Fakler plans to have him available by the start of this weekend's two-game set with the Port Huron Fighting Falcons.
