Future Considerations

Here’s the release from the Warriors:

The West Kelowna Warriors have traded defenseman Dustin Cave (94) to the Calgary Mustangs (AJHL) for future considerations.

At 5’11, and 203 pounds, Cave played a hard-nosed style of defense.  Over 2 years he accumulated 108 games played, 1 goal, and 15 assists.

The Tappen, BC native was traded from the Salmon Arm Silverbacks in 2011, and is a player the organization won’t easily forget.

“Dustin is a great all around person,” says Warriors Head Coach/GM Rylan Ferster.  “He represented the program with class 100 percent of the time.  His work in the community was amongst the best I had ever been a part of.  We want to thank him for his contributions to the program, and wish him well with his new team.”

“Caver”, as fans knew him, was a favorite amongst the youth in the community for all his hard work at local Schools, and especially with the Okanagan Boys & Girls Club.

Dustin spearheaded a program called “Caver’z Kidz”.  Each Tuesday he played floor hockey with a group of kids at the local Boys & Girls Club.  At every game kids from the club were invited to sit in the Caver’z Kidz zone, and were treated with treats, special t-shirt’s, and get to meet Dustin post-game.

Not only did Dustin find sponsorship of season tickets for all of his Caver’z Kidz, he also raised $1000 for the Okanagan Boys & Girls Club throughout the year.
