Henwood and Harvey Join the Storm

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

“It’s very exciting with two key guys coming here.” That’s how Campbell River Storm General Manager Lee Stone describes today’s trade with the Oceanside Generals

The Storm and the Generals completed a big deal that involved three veteran players. Goalie Matt Henwood (’98) and defenceman Josh Harvey (97’) come to Campbell River for defenceman Colton Rhodes (’97) and futures.

Henwood, from Comox, has a history of playing well against the Storm. In three games this season, he faced an average of 57 shots per game with a save percentage of .918. “He’s very confident, he knows he’s good and we want a guy coming in who has that swagger”, says Stone.

Harvey is a third year VIJHL D-man with some Junior ‘A experience. According to the Storm GM, “His experience in the league brings a calming influence on the backend. He moves the puck well, he’s effective getting the puck to the forwards and he’s smooth on the power play.” The 6’0” 190 pounder, from Port Alberni, has accumulated 9 points in 18 games (2G 7A) this season.

Rhodes was the top scoring Storm backliner after 21 games with 13 points on 4 goals and 9 assists. “Rhodsey’s done everything we’ve asked this season,” says Stone. The 19 year old is from Sherman Oaks California.

Harvey and Henwood will be ready Friday in Saanich when the Storm take on the Braves.
