The Penticton Vees pulled the trigger on their second trade in as many days as they’ve acquired D Ryan Wells (93) from the Nanaimo Clippers for future considerations.
With the Vees only returning Troy Stecher and DJ Jones to their blueline in 2012-13, Penticton, with trades and recruiting, needs to add depth to its defence corps. Although they have recruited Noah Henry (94) for the 2012-13 season, I’d be willing to bet that coach and GM Fred Harbinson isn’t done making moves to shore up the D.
For Nanaimo, it already has six defencemen on its’ roster, including returnees and recruits, so the Clippers had the depth to make this trade.
Neither team has confirmed this deal, but it is posted on the BCHL website. Here’s how it breaks down:
