New Grande Prairie Storm Head Coach and GM Matt Hughes has completed his first deal, sending 19 year old Goalie Connor LaCouvee to the Merritt Centennials of the BCHL in exchange for future considerations.

Lacouvee, originally from Qualicom Beach, BC spent most of last season with the Cowichan Valley Capitals and was acquired prior to the start of the season in another ‘future considerations’ deal.

“Connor was in a situation where he was going to be our number 3, behind Nick Kulmanovsky and Joakim Jutras, and we wanted to find an opportunity for him to get more playing time a little closer to home. We wish him all the best” said Hughes.
