The comings and goings in the crease continue for the Comox Valley Glacier Kings.

The VIJHL North Division leaders announced Monday the signing of 17-year-old goaltender Bryce DiRocco and the release of 18-year-old netminder Josh Round.

DiRocco, from Port Alberni, was an affiliate with the club and leads the team in goals against average and save percentage. Round took over the starting job at times during injuries to the previous starter and newcomer Michael Hails, the team noted.

Earlier this month, the Icemen sent Matt Mitchell to North Okanagan Knights of the KIJHL and obtained Hails from Creston Valley Thunder Cats of the KIJHL. Denon Maximchuck, an affiliate from the Nanaimo AAA Midgets, has also seen action between the pipes for the Yetis this year.

“The Comox Valley Glacier Kings would like to thank Josh for his tremendous efforts during the first half of the season. Josh was signed out of main camp and played more games than any other Glacier Kings goaltender in the first half of the season,” a statement from the club said.

Head coach Bill Rotheisler said bringing in DiRocco “just made sense. We talked as a staff for awhile now to determine the direction we wanted to go, and with (starter) Michael Hails out for the next few weeks, it became evident that this was something we needed.

“The acquisition of Hails allowed us to bring in Bryce, a younger but very skilled and talented goaltender that has a similar style to Michael and at the same time can learn from his experience.”

The Glacier Kings thanked Port Alberni Minor Hockey for all their work with DiRocco.
