The BCHL and Hockey Canada roster deadline came and went on Sunday night and when the dust settled, it proved to be one of the busier deadlines in recent memory.
In total, the day saw ten trades and three signings made involving eleven of the BCHL’s 17 teams. Langley, Penticton, Surrey, Trail, Wenatchee, and West Kelowna were the only clubs that didn’t make a move on January 10th. Chilliwack, Powell River, and Prince George were the busiest teams, each making two trades and one signing.
The age of players who were traded breaks down like this: 1995-born (3), 1996-born (5), and 1997-born (5).
West Kelowna defenceman Scott Allan (96) was traded on deadline day, but it was his Western Hockey League rights on the move from Lethbridge to Calgary for a seventh round pick in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft. Allan has played 93 career WHL games with Medicine Hat, Seattle, and Lethbridge. The Hitmen release announcing the trade states that Allan will stay in the BCHL with the Warriors.
