The West Kelowna Warriors have acquired defenseman Jaden Schmeisser, (1993 birth year) from the Victoria Grizzlies for future considerations.
Schmeisser spent the last two seasons with the Grizzlies. The 6-foot-2 product from Qualicum Beach is just what the Warriors were looking for, according to coach/GM Rylan Ferster.
“Acquiring Jaden gives us much needed size on the back end,” said Ferster. “He’s a twenty year old that will add experience, and bring a physical presence every night.”
Jaden played in 44 games last year and scored three goals with nine assists. He added a goal and an assist, in eight playoff games this past spring.
Schmeisser will be in town mid-August for the start of the Warriors training camp.
