The Merritt Centennials announced today that they have acquired forward Joshua Kagan (00) from the Cowichan Valley Capitals in exchange for future considerations.
Kagan, a Winnepeg, Manitoba native, spent last season with the Winkler Flyers in the MJHL before coming over to the Capitals this year. With the Flyers he had 11 goals, 14 assists and 25 points over 48 games. At 5'11 and 165 pounds, the left shot winger has been one of the leading scorers for the Capitals with 4 goals and 3 assists in 7 games played.
Head Coach Barry Wolff says that he's glad to be adding some offense to the lineup.
"Josh is a kid that I had the chance to watch last year in the Manitoba league. He has a lot of skill, and early on he's proven he can transfer those skills to the BCHL. We look forward to having him in the dressing room and on the ice."
Unfortunately, the Cents will no longer be procuring the services of Jerzy Orchard from the Kamloops Blazers after his rights were acquired by the Saskatoon Blades.
Kagan will get a chance to be in the lineup on Saturday night when the Centennials welcome the Wenatchee Wild to the NVMA for a 7pm puck drop.
