The Merritt Centennials announced today that they have traded forward Alex Bourhas to the Nepean Raiders of the Central Canada Hockey League for future considerations.
With the acquisition of Brad Cocca earlier in the year, the Cents have been carrying an extra forward on the roster.
Head Coach and General Manager Joe Martin said that the move was made to make room for a veteran.
"“With Chase Bell coming off injured reserve, we needed to make room on our roster for a forward.”
The move means that Chase Bell will most likely draw into the lineup against the Salmon Arm Silverbacks on Friday night, where the Cents have a chance to catch the Silverbacks in the standings.
