Merritt-Powell River Trade:

The Merritt Centennials got in on the act before the BCHL Trade Deadline with the acquisition of F Carter Shinkaruk (91) from the Powell River Kings for future considerations.

The Cents obviously had room to add a 20-year-old with just four on the roster, but with Shinkaruk being added, Merritt is now one player over the 21-man limit, so Luke Pierce can’t be done adjusting his roster today.

Obviously Pierce thought his club needed a bigger veteran presence as Shinkaruk is a guy with 151 career BCHL games under his belt and maybe even more importantly, 17 playoff games.

To Merritt:
F Carter Shinkaruk (91)
To Powell River:
Future Considerations
