Warriors add veteran goalie

Press Release

Hours before their first exhibition game of the 2013 pre-season, the West Kelowna Warriors have added some strength between the pipes.

West Kelowna has acquired the Junior ‘A’ playing rights to goaltender Andy Desautels from the SJHL’s Flin Flon Bombers in exchange for future considerations. 

The 19 year-old is expected to return to the CJHL after his WHL club, the Prince Albert Raiders, picked up star goalie Cole Cheveldave from the Kamloops Blazers.

“He’s a veteran goalie with a great reputation” says Warriors Head Coach / GM Rylan Ferster of the move.

Ferster says he’s spoken to Desautels, and he expects the Saskatchewan product to arrive in the Okanagan within a day or two
