Kamloops, BC – The Portland Winterhawks have claimed 20-year-old forward Matt Revel on WHL waivers from the Kamloops Blazers.
Revel, who was in his fourth season with the Blazers and fifth season in the WHL, suffered an upper body injury on December 10th that will keep him out of the line-up indefinitely.
“We’d like to thank Matt for his time with the Blazers,” commented General Manager, Stu MacGregor. “He was a great contributor to our organization for three and a half seasons. We hope Matt can get healthy and back to playing this season. We wish him nothing but the best in Portland and his future endeavors.”
The Blazers roster is now set at 23 players with two goaltenders, seven defensemen and 14 forwards.
