Some Rider Player news

The Ghostriders moved F  Nolan Lagace's playing rights to 100 Mile for the rights to D man  Brent Headon    who was in Nelson last season but was moved to 100 as part of the Alex Meeker  trade made last year.

Anyway, Lagace who will play as a 20 may not end up in 100 and may end up in Alberta before next season, and if he does he can play as a 21 year old next year in that league. Yes they can have a couple of 21's.

 And Headon who will turn 19 shortly may or may not end up in Fernie because of work but Coach Craig Mohr is sure hoping he comes here as large D men are always a welcome sight here in Fernie.

The Riders have also acquired F  Jace Woodley  a 20 year old from Sicamous for a player development fee   

I'm told goalie Brandon Butler had successful knee surgery and is now planning to attend SAIT next season. It's hard to tell if he will try out for the Trojans right after surgery, but it's possible. SAIT coach Dan Olsen  who was a Pass Timberwolf HC and GM  a few years ago was an excellent judge of goalies when he was in the Pass bringing in a few guys who went on to play a much higher levels.

Evan Traverse and Ryan Kennedy are going to UBC Okanagan, but I think they are just going to school.

Alex Cheveldave may end up in New York at a Div 111 school, he will definitely be playing hockey there.

Ben Shushkovski is also going to school and that makes two large D men the Riders will be without next season.

Coach Mohr has been actively recruiting and has a few players who may come here if they don't make junior A. As we find out more we'll post the info.
