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.”
