Storm add power-forward

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

The Campbell River Storm would like to announce that the organization has acquired 1995-born forward, Fraser Sutherland from the Port Moody Panthers of the Pacific Junior Hockey League for future considerations.
Sutherland appeared in 33 games with the Port Moody Panthers (PJHL) in 2012/13. The 6’4”, 186lbs, left-handed forward contributed with 5 goals and 6 assists while adding 61 PIMs. Fraser was also an affiliate player with the Penticton Vees of the BCHL last season, and appeared in two games.
Prior to playing for the Panthers in 2012/13, Sutherland played his 16 year old season in the VIJHL with the Peninsula Panthers. Playing in Peninsula Sutherland tallied 4 goals and 7 assists while adding 71 PIMs.
“Fraser is someone I have been watching the last two seasons,” said Campbell River Storm Head Coach Lee Stone. “He brings added size down the middle of the ice to our hockey club and is the type of player that is very hard to play against. That is what we want to be, hard to play against,” added Stone.

Sutherland from Nanoose Bay, British Columbia, is currently preparing for Main Camp with the Cowichan Valley Capitals. Sutherland is a character player on the ice and a character person off the ice and provides much needed size to the Storm forward group.
“I’m excited and expecting great success for myself individually and for the Campbell River Storm as a team,” Sutherland said, who is currently training at home preparing for camps, “I am looking forward to playing in front of such an incredible fan base,” added Sutherland.
