The Merritt Centennials announced the signing of 2000 born right shot defenseman Brady Ziemer today.
The Carver, Minnesota native joins the Centennials by way of the Holy Family Catholic Fire in the United States High School League where he served as Captain and tallied 7 goals and 21 assists for 28 points in 25 games played.
Ziemer has also earned a commitment to the St. Cloud State University Huskies for the 2019-20 season.
Head Coach and General Manager Joe Martin says that he feels Ziemer will make life difficult on the opponent.
"He's a right handed defenseman, he plays a hard nose style. He's a medium sized defenseman but has a low centre of gravity, likes to play physical, and should help us against some of the better players in the league."
Martin adds that Ziemer should get some game time this weekend as the Centennials open the season against the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, before coming home to take on the Vernon Vipers.
Both games will be available with Play by Play Broadcaster Jared Thomas on the dial at 101.1FM or online at Q101.ca.
