Warriors send Porter to Maritimes

Goalie Cody Porter dealt to junior A team in Amherst, Nova Scotia

The West Kelowna Warriors have traded goaltender Cody Porter (’97) to the Amherst Ramblers of the Maritime Hockey League in exchange for future considerations.

Porter, 20, returned to the Warriors after spending three seasons in the Western Hockey League with the Calgary Hitmen and Vancouver Giants.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound North Vancouver native spent four games with the Warriors this season, posting a 1-2-0 record to go along with a 5.69 goals against average and a .872 save percentage.

In 20 career games with the Warriors, Porter registered a 9-7-1 record along with 3.95 GAA and a .874 save percentage.

“Cody is a great kid and competes in every aspect of the game,” said Warriors head coach and general manager Rylan Ferster.“We want to wish Cody all the best in his future with Amherst.”

Warriors home for 2…

The Warriors will settle into Royal LePage Place this weekend for a pair of games against BCHL Interior Division rivals.

On Friday, the Merritt Centennials will provide the opposition, followed by a visit from the Vernon Vipers on Saturday.

Face off both nights is 7 p.m.

The Vipers have beaten the Warriors in all three meetings—all played in Vernon—this season.

The Warriors (15-10-1-0) are tied for fourth in the Interior with Penticton, one point back of Wenatchee and six in arrears of second-place Vernon (17-5-0-4).

Merritt (9-12-2-1) sits in last spot, three points back of sixth-place Salmon Arm.

Next Wednesday, West Kelowna will travel to Penticton to take on the Vees.
