Blazers Make it Official

This morning they announced the signng of G Cole Cheveldave of Calgary, AB. He will join the team next season as an 18 year-old.

Blazers General Manager Craig Bonner spoke on the news..

"It's a big signing for us. He had a good season being named the Alberta Junior Hockey League's rookie of the year. We hope he can continue to play the way like he did this past season. He's a competitive kid and he sees the window of opportunity here. We don't have a solidified number one guy right now and we're very excited to have him on board"

He says an early March visit by Cheveldave to Kamloops helped the recruiting process.

"I think it's what sealed the deal. He was here for four days and had a great experience. We put a lot of effort into this and we're happy to welcome him next season."
