Duncan, BC – The Cowichan Capitals have acquired 19 year-old Forward Nicolas Carrier from the Nanaimo Clippers.
The move completes an earlier transaction that saw the Capitals send the playing rights of Defenceman Ryan Coghlan to Nanaimo.
The native of Delson, Quebec just finished his rookie BCHL season where he put up 21 goals and 26 assists for 47 points along with 52 penalty minutes, finishing eighth overall in regular season scoring among BCHL rookies. The winger also played a big role in Nanaimo’s deep playoff run with five goals and five assists.
“Nicolas is an excellent all around forward that can add offence and maintain a presence in the defensive zone,” said Capitals Head Coach and General Manager, Bob Beatty.
“He is a tremendous penalty killer and his biggest asset is his compete level which he continuously displayed in games against us and throughout the playoffs in key situations. We are extremely pleased to welcome Nicolas to our team and expect him to play a major role in the Caps’ success in the upcoming season.”
The Capitals family extends a warm welcome to Nicolas and welcome him to the Cowichan Valley.
