The Fernie Ghostriders announced two new signings last week with the signing of Austin Evans.  former Rider and local top prospect Brendon Mangone

Evans spent his 16 year old season playing for the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the BCHL playing in 47 games registering 2 goals and 6 assists for 8 points.  Several past coaches have commented on Austin’s speed and puck skills.  We expect him to have an excellent year in Fernie and continue to develop his skill set to get back to the BCHL.

Mangone, 18, spent the 2010-2011 season recovering from injury and is now back on the ice and ready to continue his development towards playing at the next level.  Mangone was a big part of our 2009-2010 season as he made huge strides becoming the teams #2 center.  Brendon is a gritty center that plays well at both ends of the rink.  He has scoring ability and he is always hard to play against.  It is bitter sweet to have Brendon back as you always want to see players move on to higher levels when they have the ability.  Brendon does have the ability he needs some time to get back to form as a year away from the game is tough. Mangone is working hard off the ice and knows he is going to be relied on heavily this year to be a leader on and off the ice.
