New Fernie Ghostriders captain

 

By Will Verner

Head Coach

 

Fernie Ghostriders would like to announce the naming of Ty Morton as the Captain for the club for the 2011-2012 season.  Ty came to us last year from the Oceanside Generals after playing 1 year for the BCHL’s Nanaimo Clippers.  Ty is a strong player on the ice and off and he has the respect of his teammates.  Ty has played in 2 Provincial Championships at our level and is looking to add a Gold medal to his trophy case.  We are excited for Ty’s opportunity and his ability to lead our club.

The Fernie Ghostriders have named Connor McLaughlin as the Assistant Captain of the club this year.  Connor was acquired last season for the push to win the Cyclone Taylor Cup and has returned for his final season of Junior hockey.  Connor is a leader on and off the ice and he will push his teammates to be the best they can be.

The Leadership of our team is very important on our development. We are relying heavily on these two young men to make smart decisions.

The Fernie Ghostriders have traded the CHA playing rights of Josh Garneau, 1991, to the Kerry Park Islanders for future considerations. Josh was a solid contributor on and off the ice and we thank Josh for his time in Fernie and wish him well with his new team.

The Fernie Ghostriders have traded the CHA playing rights of Josh McGladery, 1992, to the Saanich Braves of the KIJHL for future considerations.  The Ghostriders wish Josh well with his new team.

The Fernie Ghostriders have traded Josh McEwan, 1991, to the Kelowna Chiefs for future considerations.  Josh has spent the last 3 years in the BCHL with the Langley Chiefs, Trail Smoke Eaters and finally this past year in the AJHL with the Drumheller Dragons.  Josh scored the winning goal in 2008 when we won the KIJHL championship.  We wish Josh well with his new team and thank him for all he did when he played for the Ghostriders both on and off the ice.

The Ghostriders are having a home opener tail-gate party from 9 a.m. on Saturday. Come and enjoy a free public skate with the Ghostriders, a charity barbecue with proceeds to the BC Childrens Hospital Foundation, a bouncy house, a shoot to score on one of the Ghostriders goalies, the game against the Kimberley Dynamiters at 7:30 p.m. and then finally a post game party at the Pub at the Park Place Lodge.
