Kalamazoo obtains Kohls from Kenai River

The Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings have announced the completion of a trade that will send forward Mikhail Bushinski to the Kenai River Brown Bears in return for forward Lucas Kohls.

Bushinski is a 20-year-old native of Woodbury, Minn., who was the leading scorer for the Fresno Monsters when he came over to the Jr. K-Wings in late October. He is a two-year veteran of the NAHL and was fourth on the Fresno team in scoring last season (17 goals, 16 assists, 33 points).

Bushinski also showed great durability last season as he was the only member of Fresno that played in all 60 regular-season games.

In his time with Kalamazoo, Bushinski played in 20 games, but was never able to get it going offensively as he was only able to produce a goal and five assists.

Kohls, a 19-year-old native of Forest Lake, Minn., leaves the Brown Bears having been ranked second on the team in scoring. In 34 games with Kenai River, he had nine goals and 14 assists for a total of 23 points.

There is no word as to when the rookie will make his way to Kalamazoo from Alaska, but Kohls should be ready to play by next weekend at the latest.
