Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Blazers announced Tuesday evening that they have sent 20-year-old defenseman Josh Caron to the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a 4th round draft pick.

Caron spent three and a half seasons with the Blazers and played 128 games. He racked up 375 penalty minutes in that time.

“With eight defensemen on the roster, we felt the need to give more ice time to our younger defensemen,” General Manager Craig Bonner said. “We’d also like to thank Josh for his time as a Blazer and wish him the best of luck.”

The Kamloops Blazers are back on home ice this weekend as they host the Prince George Cougars on Friday night and Victoria Royals on Saturday. Friday night is the annual Teddy Bear / Toque Toss. For tickets, call the Box Office at 250-828-1144.
