I spoke with 18-year-old Josh Blanchard this morning, after he was acquired from the Surrey Eagles on Wednesday, in exchange for 19-year-old Defenseman Andy Chugg.
Head Coach Brandon West with his thought’s on Blanchard and how he’ll fit into the line-up.
Blanchard of Kelowna, BC had one assist in five games with the Eagles to begin the season. He scored three goals and four assists in 31 games with the Penticton Vees in the 2013-14, and 2012-13 season’s.
18-year-old Defenseman Bennett Morrison speaks about losing a current and former teammate in Wednesday’s trade. He and Chugg were teammates south of the border at Kent School High School hockey.
