“We are excited to have Inaki join the Blazers this year,” GM Matt Bardsley said. “He displayed good mobility along with strong passing skills and hockey sense which enabled him to have a strong season last year in Lausanne. He led their defense in scoring as a 17-year-old and followed that up with a very strong playoff run. We look forward to him bringing those same qualities to Kamloops.”

Inaki Baragano was selected in the first round as 16th overall by the Blazers at this year's CHL import draft in June. With Lausanne HC's Elite A team last season, the defenseman collected 30 points in 50 games. Moreover, he suited up for Switzerland at the U18-World Championship, recording one assist.
