Kamloops, BC – Kamloops Blazers General Manager Craig Bonner announced today that the Blazers have signed 16-year-old defenseman Travis Verveda to a standard WHL contract.
Verveda was added to the Blazers
protected list this past February after suiting up for the Red Deer
Northstar Chiefs of the Alberta Minor Midget League. The 6’0” 165lb
defenseman put up 14 points in 32 games last season.
“Travis showed his potential with a
strong training camp,” commented Director of Player Personnel, Matt
Recchi. “His game has continued to improve day-by-day. We look forward
to watching his progress.”
Verveda will make his debut tonight with the Blazers wearing #6 on the back-end.
