The West Kelowna Warriors have traded defensemen Blake Coffey (’98) to the Brockville Braves of the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) in exchange for future considerations.
Coffey, 18, was signed by the Warriors after his release from Tri-City Storm of the United States Hockey League (USHL). The Toronto, Ontario native collected three goals and no assists in his 24 games played with the Warriors in the BCHL to go along with 18 penalty minutes.
“Blake is a hard working, great kid that we want to wish him nothing but the best moving forward” stated Warriors general manager and head coach Rylan Ferster.
The Warriors would like to thank Blake for his time and contributions to the team and the City of West Kelowna and would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
The Warriors are back in action on Friday night when they head to Kal Tire Place for the first time this season to play the Vernon Vipers. Puck drop is slated for 7:00 PM with the pre-game show starting at 6:50 PM on the Warriors Internet Network and hockeytv.com. The Warriors are back at Royal LePage Place Saturday night to host the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.
