Myrowich to Comox

Thursday, November 17, 2016

As reported during the HockeyTV webcast last Friday, the Campbell River Storm have sent 1999 goalie Zak Myrowich to the Comox Valley Glacier Kings for the rights to defenceman Ben Raffler (’98).

Raffler is currently playing Junior “A” with Powell River.

“Ben is an elite Junior “B” defenceman as evidenced by his signing with the BCHL Kings,” says General Manager Lee Stone. “We are fortunate to be in a position to take a chance on whether Ben will return from Junior A. If he does, Ben will be a top level defender as we push to help him get back to that level.”

Stone says he felt that it was in Myrowich’s best interests to get him ice time and that wasn’t going to happen in Campbell River following the Matt Henwood acquisition last week. “This is a great opportunity for Zak to play a steady amount of games over the next few weeks. We felt after long discussions it would be a better opportunity for him moving towards the BCHL.”
