Nanaimo Adds Netminder Tanner Kovacs from Whitecourt:

The Nanaimo Clippers shored up their crease just days ahead of the December 1st roster deadline, acquiring 19-year-old Tanner Kovacs from the AJHL’s Whitecourt Wolverines for future considerations.

Kovacs, who’s in his third season of junior A hockey and has four WHL games on his resume, had a 12-4-1-0 record for the Wolverines this season prior to the trade.

Where this leaves current Clippers goaltenders Jayson Argue and Liam McLeod, only time will tell as I’d imagine Nanaimo won’t carry three netminders on its roster.

The trade isn’t posted on either team’s website, either league’s website, but the Wolverines did post it on their official Facebook page earlier today and Kovacs himself Tweeted yesterday about heading to play in Nanaimo.
