The Merritt Centennials continue to tweak their roster after signing 18-year-old forward Brent Fletcher. The New Westminster product has played three games with the Cents as an affiliate player, notching two goals. Fletcher, who was one of the last cuts from Merritt's training camp, was with junior 'B' Ridge-Meadows to start the season where he posted four goals and three assists in 12 games. 20-year-old goaltender Jared Andersen's days as a Centennial are coming to an end. The Cents are trying to trade Andersen after acquiring 18-year-old Lino Chimienti last week from the AJHL's Grand Prairie Storm. Chimienti and 17-year-old Tyler Steel are set to be the Cents goaltending duo going forward. Meanwhile, goaltender Cole Holowenko, who played with the Cents last season, has been cut by the WHL's Chilliwack Bruins. He won't be returning to Merritt, but the Centennials still hold his junior 'A' rights and will try to find a place for him to play.
