Two Warriors en route to Coquitlam as part of trade deadline deals

Brent Lashuk and Matthew Berry-Lamontagna announced as the players to be named later

The West Kelowna Warriors have announced the players to be named later after a trade deadline deal this year saw the B.C. Hockey League club acquire two players designed to push for playoff success this past season.

Defenceman Matthew Berry-Lamontagna, 19, and rookie forward Brent Lashuk, 18, will both be joining the Coquitlam Express for the 2013-14 season.

The players were part of BCHL trade deadline deals that brought the Warriors Coquitlam Express captain Mitch Nardi, 19, and Danny Gayle, 20, from the Fort McMurray Oil Barons.

“Making deals is never easy, it`s something that is part of the game,” said Warriors head coach/GM Rylan Ferster. “This year we tried to put ourselves in a position to have a chance in the playoffs, and to get something you have to give something. As an organization we want to wish both Matthew and Brent all the best and thank them for their contributions both on and off the ice”

Nardi played in just 19 games for the Warriors registering three goals and four assists. Unfortunately he missed the entire playoffs after suffering a concussion in the Warriors third last game of the season versus Victoria and will move on next season, as he was already committed to Lake Superior State University to play NCAA hockey.

The 20-year-old Gayle will not be with the Warriors next season either, as he played his final games of a junior career in West Kelowna, where he had nine points in 21 games.

A Winfield native, Lashuk had nine goals and 11 assists in 42 games in his rookie year. Barry-Lamontagna, from Vancouver, played in 50 games for the Warriors and had 11 points from the blueline.
