April 17, 2014, Nanaimo BC (ISN) – The Nanaimo Clippers are pleased to announce that 1996 Defenceman Ryan Fritz has committed to play for the Team for the upcoming 2014-2015 season.
Ryan joins the Clippers from the Buffalo Jr. Sabres U18 Team. Ryan is a 6’2″ 195lb defenceman who hails from Rochester, New York. This past season he tallied 9 points and 114 PIMS for the Sabres.
Coach Vandekamp: “We are very excited to add Ryan to our roster for the upcoming season. He is a big strong defenceman who will bring physical play and competitiveness to our defence corps. Ryan is a great athlete with plenty of long term upside. He will be able to come in as a first year player and play important minutes for us right away.
We are confident that he will help our team be tougher to play against and develop into a very reliable defenceman. We would like to welcome Ryan and his Family to the Clipper Family and look forward to seeing him on the ice at Main Camp.”
