Glacier Kings making moves, Storm staying put

An interesting season in North Division of Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League

There’s been seldom a dull moment in the North Division of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League this season.

While the Comox Valley Glacier Kings have been announcing player moves at a rapid pace, the Campbell River Storm have announced that they are not moving – at least not this year.

The latest transaction update on the Glacier Kings’ website includes the following:

Acquired: F Tyson Rennie (Campbell River), F Andrew White (Saanich Braves), Max Crawford (Campbell River). Signed/Call Up: G Bryce DiRocco (Port Alberni Midget Rep). Moved: F Jordan Kamprath (Campbell River), F Adam Robertson (Kerry Park Islanders), G Josh Round (Peninsula Panthers). Signed Affiliated Players: F Brandon Tutte (North Island Silvertips – BCMML) F Declan Garood (Comox Midget Rep), James Jerzynski (Comox Midget Rep), Zack McIntyre (Comox Juvenile).

The Icemen will be looking to snap a five-game losing streak tonight when they take on the Saanich Braves in Victoria. On Saturday night they host the Nanaimo Buccaneers in a 7:30 p.m. start at Comox Valley Sports Centre Arena No. 1.

Meanwhile, the Storm have reached a new agreement with the Strathcona Regional District that will allow the franchise to remain a fixture at the Rod Brind’Amour Arena for the remainder of the season.

In October, Storm owners Kevin Spooner and his wife Linda told the SRD (which governs operations at Strathcona Gardens) the franchise was bleeding financially and without a restructuring of their rental agreement they would be forced to cease operations by December 2012.

In a press release last week, the Storm said they are hopeful that the same working relationship with the SRD will continue in future seasons.
