Posse acquire four players in exchange for 19 year old forward Kaleb Boyle

The Posse have sent Kaleb Boyle, one of their highest point earners last season, to the Campbell River Storm

PRINCETON, B.C. (July 25, 2013)

The wheel that keeps turning, which is the Hockey Operations department of the Princeton Posse, has struck again in what is looking like a massive retooling of the Posse’s shelves.  The Posse have sent Kaleb Boyle, one of their highest point earners last season, to the Campbell River Storm of the VIJHL in return for four players in a multi-team swap.  Posse GM and Head Coach Bill Rotheisler stated “We need to become a more competitive team in the playoffs, Kaleb was a competitor here, but the assets we have coming back increase the compete factor we will have on the ice and at camp, and shows our commitment to being a strong organization to our players, and our fans”.

Boyle, born in `94, scored 34 goals and 31 assists in 51 games, putting him second in points for the Posse last season.

In exchange, the Posse will receive four 1995 born players in Gibson Doney, Bradley King, Kurtis Coburn and a player in the form of a future consideration, based solely on paper work still being processed at the time of the press release, but will be announced shortly.

Doney, from Nanaimo, is a smart physical forward who has a reputation of being very tough to play against.  Doney’s reputable physical skill has turned allot of heads.  The Salmon Arm Silverbacks prospect will be attending their main camp and could potentially earn a spot on the team.  Silverback’s representative’s high praise of Doney was a big contributor to the Posse’s interest.  Doney also has Major Junior interest.

King, known for his speed, split last season between the Abbotsford Pilots and Campbell River Storm, as well as playing for his hometown Chilliwack Chiefs of the BCHL for 5 games.  Along with Doney and Coburn, King was identified by current Posse staff last season when they were rivals in the Comox Valley.

Kelowna’s Kurtis Coburn made the leap to Junior B as a 16 year old, playing for the Grand Forks Border Bruins in the 2011-2012 season.  Last season was split between Grand Forks and Campbell River.  Coburn brings grit to the team, earning 68 penalty minutes in 24 games.  Although still young at 18, Coburn already has a full two years of experience in the KIJHL under his belt.

The player to be announced is a high point producing forward and has a strong potential to play junior A this season, however if returned to the Posse, he will make a significant impact.

Rotheisler is excited about the new members of the Posse, “All players we are getting from this deal fit the design of our team.  We have been working on this deal since we started evaluating our roster.  All players are young, however combine for a lot of junior experience.”  Rotheisler added, “These players, along with our most recent signings, are all going to be big contributors to a team that we expect will rise to the physical demands of a long season and playoffs.
