The West Kelowna Warriors Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club have acquired forward Cavin Tilsley (’98) from the Prince George Spruce Kings in exchange for future considerations.
Tilsley, 18, is a veteran of 78 BCHL games, spending the last two seasons up north with the Spruce Kings. This season, Tilsley has compiled two goals and nine points in 22 games with Prince George, coming off of a productive 2015/16 season that saw him tally 10 goals and 21 points in 56 games to go along with 83 penalty minutes.
The Delta, BC native has ties to the Okanagan as he spent the 2013/14 season with the Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy before heading to the Fernie Ghostriders of the KIJHL in the 2014/15 season.
“Tilsley is a young veteran player,” commented general manager and head coach Rylan Ferster, ”who is hard to play against and will be a nice addition for our hockey club.”
In a related move, the Warriors are pleased to announce the addition of goaltender Nik Amundrud (’97) from the Western Hockey League (WHL).
Amundrud, 19, split last season between the Saskatoon Blades and the Calgary Hitmen in the WHL, playing in 31 total games with a 13-12-0-1 record and a 3.17 GAA while amassing a .887 SV%.
The Melfort, Saskatchewan native has ties to Junior ‘A’ hockey with his father, Trevor, spending the 1993/94 season with the Melfort Mustangs of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL).
“Adding a goalie like Nik with a lot of WHL experience at 19 is an nice piece to have a this time of the year” continued Ferster.
The Warriors would like to welcome both Cavin and Nik to the city of West Kelowna.
Tilsley, Amundrud and the remainder of the Warriors hit the ice on Friday to kick-off a three-game home stand against the Vernon Vipers. Puck drop is slated for 7:00 PM with tickets available at the Warriors office or by calling Kim at (250) 769-7051.
