Storm Acquire Calgary Native

Monday, August 17, 2015

The Campbell River Storm Junior Hockey Club is pleased to announce the acquisition of 1995 born forward Alex Rosolowsky from the Kimberley Dynamiters of the KIJHL in exchange for future considerations.

   Rosolowsky, a native of Calgary, played two seasons with the Dynamiters.  In 47 games last year he registered 13 goals and 8 assists to go along with 14 minutes in penalties.

   Storm Head Coach and General Manager Lee Stone liked what he saw of Rosolowsky during the playoffs and provincial championships last season.

   "Alex will be a great addition to our forward and leadership group. I first identified Alex on a scouting trip to watch Kimberley prior to the Cyclone Taylor Cup and we saw him again two more times at the tournament. Due to a 20 year old limit in the KIJHL we were lucky to even have a chance to bring Alex into the fold. A great two way centre who has a high IQ for the game both offensively and defensively, we believe Alex will be an integral part of our on and off ice success this season."

   For his part Rosolowsky is happy with the move and anxious to get the season underway.

   “Being traded to the Storm has already been one of the best decisions of my junior career,” says the 5’11”, 175 pound left-handed centreman, “Without even playing a game I can feel the sense of pride and get the feeling that this is a winning organization, and that's exactly where I want to be. The fans and community support seem to be tremendous here as well.”

   The 19-year-old (who turns 20 in December) also says he has a clear picture of his hockey future.

   “My short term goal is pretty simple: repeating what the Storm did last year and win the Keystone Cup. I'm happy to do whatever I can to make that happen. Long term goals I see myself attending school and playing college hockey."
