KAMLOOPS – The Kamloops Blazers have traded 19-year-old goaltender Justin Myles to the Lethbridge Hurricanes today for a conditional fourth round WHL Bantam Draft pick in 2015.

Myles came over to the Blazers on trade deadline day this past January from the Seattle as the Blazers sent 20-year-old goaltender Taran Kozun to the Thunderbirds. Along with Myles, the Blazers also received 18-year-old defenseman Austin Douglas and a fourth round WHL Bantam Draft pick in 2015.

Myles was unable to suit up for the Blazers due to an undisclosed injury after being acquired from the Thunderbirds. The Blazers received an additional fourth round WHL Bantam Draft pick in 2016 from the Thunderbirds as compensation.

“In trading Justin, we feel we have a lot of depth in the goaltender position,” commented General Manager, Craig Bonner. “We have 20-year-old Bolton Pouliot expected to return along with three young goaltenders that will push for a full-time roster spot in 17-year-olds Cole Kehler, Connor Ingram and 16-year-old Dylan Ferguson.”

Kehler played half the season with the Blazers last year suiting up for 11 games and half the year with the OHA Midget Prep team winning the Canadian Sport School Hockey League.

Ingram was the top goaltender in the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League this season along with being named as the top goaltender at the Telus Cup National Midget AAA Championship. He was instrumental in helping the Prince Albert Mintos win the National Championship with 60 saves in the championship game.

Ferguson helped the Notre Dame Argos to the SMAAAHL championship with a 6-0 record in the playoffs, before eventually losing to Ingram’s Prince Albert Mintos in the West Regional finals.
