The Merritt Centennials are pleased to announce the acquisition of forward Hunor Torzsok (00) from the Estevan Bruins of the SJHL in exchange for future considerations.
Torzsok, a dual citizen of Hungary and Canada, has spent time in the WHL with the Vancouver Giants, in the BCHL with the Nanaimo Clippers, and most recently in the SJHL with the Estevan Bruins. He's been held pointless in 6 games this year with the Bruins, but last season with Nanaimo he tallied 5 points over 26 games played.
Director of Hockey Operations John Stuart says that Torzsok is a player that thinks in straight lines.
"Hunor is a big physical kid that is willing to pay the price to win puck battles, and he makes life difficult on the opposition. He's the team first type of player we are looking for."
In a separate deal, the Cents have sent defenseman Troy Quinn (99) to the Flin Flon Bombers of the SJHL in exchange for future considerations.
The Centennials would like to thank Troy for his contributions to the club over his time spent here, and welcome Hunor and his family to the team and the Nicola Valley.
Torzsok will get his first taste of Centennials action on Friday night against the Interior Division leading Salmon Arm Silverbacks.
