Rennie returning to Glacier Kings

Blockbuster deal sees Yetis send Kamprath to Campbell River

On the heels of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League’s soft roster deadline, a series of moves has Tyson Rennie returning to the Comox Valley Glacier Kings from the Campbell River Storm.

Rennie was in the Glacier Kings lineup for the 2010-11 season. He was the Storm’s top point earner this year with 26 (15g, 11a) in 27 games and will wear number 19 for the Yetis.

Yetis’ head coach Bill Rotheisler said, “When the right deal comes, at the right time, you have to be willing to pull the trigger, and this was the right deal at the right time.”

The excitement over Rennie’s return to the lineup extends beyond the coaching staff, “I’m fired up. I’m

hoping to get some ice time with him in the future,” said Jack Kennelly, who played with Rennie in 2010-11.

Rennie will join Mitch Ball on the first line, which the Glacier Kings say will add excitement and scoring opportunities.

In arguably the biggest deal of the VIJHL season, the Glacier Kings’ acquisition of Rennie saw Comox Valley captain Jordan Kamprath go to the Storm.

“This was a carefully weighed decision. Kamprath (12g, 15a in 25 games) was an intricate part of our system, and an emotional leader on our team. We wish Kamprath continued success with his hockey career,” the Glacier Kings stated in a Dec. 4 press release.

Nick Tupper will step up as captain of the Yetis and leading scorer Mitch Ball (18g, 18a in 26 games) will be

the newest alternate captain.

In keeping with their trend of impact moves, the Glacier Kings have also acquired VIJHL and North American Hockey League (NAHL) veteran Andrew White, who this year had 15 points (4g, 11a) in 21 games with the Saanich Braves.

Icemen assistant coach Mark McNaughton commented on White’s addition; “He’s one of the most respected two-way forwards in the league this year. Adding another veteran with experience at a higher level (NAHL) will be huge for us during playoffs and the Cyclone Taylor Cup.”
