Aug 19,2014(ISN) – The off season keeps rolling for the Princeton Posse. Despite being fully into this year’s Princeton Posse Hockey School, the Posse staff are still busy making tweaks to the club. The Posse acquired 18 year old Princeton local Bradley Palumbo from the Columbia Valley Rockies in exchange for future considerations. Palumbo, a strong physical forward spent two seasons with the Rockies, including his 16 year old year.
Palumbo fills a much needed void in the Princeton line up. In addition to being a local player, Palumbo is a perfect fit for the coaching staff’s plan of making the Posse a “much tougher team to play against”.
Assistant General Manager Mark McNaughton weighed in on the earlier statement: “We don’t want to just be tougher, or be able to handle ourselves in a fight, that’s not what it is about. It is about adding to our team with players who can play a hockey, make it tough for players to get around with good defensive play with strong physical frames. Brad fit’s this framework. We have been trying to acquire Brad for a long time now and are extremely happy it is now complete”.
Newest Posse Bradley Palumbo found out about the trade on the ice as he was instructing at the Princeton Posse Hockey School. He commented; “I am extremely happy to be joining Princeton. Growing up in Princeton I have a lot of pride for Posse colours. Although I enjoyed playing the last couple seasons in Columbia Valley, finding out that I was moved to the Posse is the best thing that could have happened”. Palumbo will be on the ice with the rest of the Posse in town where, in addition to working the hockey school, are putting in two ice times a day to get prepared for the upcoming season.
