GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB
The Grande Prairie Storm of the Alberta Junior Hockey League have traded 20-year-old defensemen Tyrell Boucher to the Cowichan Valley Capitals in exchange for 19-year-old defensemen Doug Scott and future considerations.
General Manager, Mark Bomersback spoke about the trade:
?Whenever you make a trade like this it’s never easy. Tyrell was an assistant captain for us and was given the opportunity to play a significant role for us offensively. In this case, sometimes change is necessary and fosters a renewed confidence both ways. We feel Doug is a player, if given the opportunity, will excel in our system. Doug brings great speed to our back end and competes every single night. He plays to win and excelled last year in the BCHL playoffs when Cowichan pulled off an incredible 1st round upset defeating top seed Penticton Vee?s. We noticed similar traits in Jarin Sutton last year, and Sutton contributed offensively with 13 points in 20 games after joining us. Adding Doug to what we feel is an already a strong core makes us that much more dangerous from the backend offensively as well as defensively.?
Doug Scott will be in Grande Prairie this weekend and will be in the lineup for Monday night?s Brian Nash Game, 7:30pm at Revolution Place. The game is $10 cash at the gate, or $20 for families! All funds will go towards the Brian Nash Scholarship which is given to a graduating Storm player to help with the costs associated with College or University. Last year?s recipient was forward Zach Webb who committed to play for Grant MacEwan University this fall.
