Nanaimo BC– The Nanaimo Clippers are pleased to announce our first player commitment for the 2013-2014 season. 17 year old forward Ryan Forbes has committed to join the Clippers for the 2013-2014 season. The 6'0" 185lb Forbes currently plays for the Cariboo Cougars of the BC Major Midget League. So far this season he has 10 goals and 15 assists for 25 points in 26 games.
Head Coach & GM Mike Vandekamp comment: "Our scouting and coaching staff are excited to make this announcement today. After watching the first half of the season and the recent Mac's Midget Tournament in Calgary, we were all in agreement that Ryan was one of the top prospects we wanted to pursue for next season. He is a strong two way centre who brings competitiveness and intelligence to the ice every game. He is a great character person who we believe will fit perfectly into our culture. We are confident that Coach Sprague and the Cougars program will help Ryan be ready to make an immediate impact next season. We would like to welcome Ryan and his Family to the Clippers Family."
