BLAZERS SIGN FORWARD CAEDAN BANKIER
Kamloops, BC – Kamloops Blazers General Manager Matt Bardsley announced today the signing of forward Caedan Bankier to a standard WHL player agreement.

“As an organization we are excited that Caedan has committed to play for the Kamloops Blazers,” commented Bardsley. “He is a complete two way center who has the ability to hang on to pucks while in traffic areas. His combination of vision, passing ability and a strong understanding of the game will enable him to be a key contributor to our team. We look forward to continuing to watch his game develop while in Kamloops.”
Bankier was among 23 prospects that participated in the annual Prospects Camp in Kamloops June 1st to 3rd.
