Cents Deal for a Forward

Press Release

The Merritt Centennials have completed a trade with the Powell River Kings of the BCHL Island Divison. 

The Cents have acquired forward James Neil (95) from the Kings in exchange for future considerations. 

The six foot Neil brings 2 years of BCHL experience.  He had 20 points in 50 games with Powell River last season.

"We are excited to add James to our roster this season," says Centennial Head Coach and GM Luke Pierce.  "He comes with two years of BCHL experience which will help make up for some of the experience we are losing with departures from last year's team.  James has great size and has proven in his past that he can be an elite scorer."

"We are confident that a fresh start here in Merritt will give his career a boost and we look forward to having him join our group at our upcoming camp on the 19th," Pierce added.

Centennials training camp begins Monday August 19th at the Nicola Valley Memorial Arena.
