Warriors add ex-WHL goalie

Trevor Martin joins BCHL team after being released by the Red Deer Rebels

The West Kelowna Warriors have picked up former Red Deer Rebels and Saskatoon Blades goaltender Trevor Martin.

The West Kelowna Warriors will have a new man between the pipes when they visit the Nanaimo Clippers Friday night in BCHL action.

Trevor Martin, 20, joins the Warriors after being released by the WHL’s Red Deer Rebels.

The Ardrossan, AB native is a veteran of 70 major junior games split between the Saskatoon Blades and the Rebels. Martin appeared in three games this season with Red Deer with a 4.14 GAA and a .888 save percentage. Last season was one of the 20-year old’s best as he appeared in 38 games while boasting a 2.63 GAA and a .911 save percentage for the Memorial Cup hosts.

The 6-foot-2, 180 lb netminder is no stranger to Junior ‘A’ hockey, playing the end of the 2014/15 season with the Melville Millionaires of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) where he played in 21 games, earning a 2.15 GAA and an impressive .929 SV%.

With the addition of Martin, the Warriors have released 20-year-old forward Mitchell Barker. The Kamloops native had two goals and six points in 12 games played with the Warriors this season.

“Adding Trevor will hopefully solidify our goaltending situation,” stated Warriors head coach and general manager Rylan Ferster, “He’s a veteran with a good amount of games under his belt both at the Major Junior and the Junior ‘A’ level.”

The Warriors, who are winless in six games, will play three games in as many days on the island, as they visit Cowichan Valley on Saturday and Alberni Valley for a Sunday matinee.
