The Nanaimo Clippers have signed WHL Veteran Forward Scott Mahovlich.
Mahovlich, an Abbotsford native played in 151 games in the WHL with three teams, Kamloops Blazers, Regina Pats and the Lethbridge Hurricanes proving himself as a force to reckon with.
Head Coach of the Clippers Darren Naylor coached Mahovlich back when he was nine-years old and has always kept an eye on him “I knew since an early age he was going to be a great hockey player.” Naylor commented “His is going to add a lot to our team, from his ability to play a two-way game, his size and physical presence to his leadership amongst his teammates.”
As he enters his final year of Junior Hockey his goal is to leave with a championship “My goal this season is to win a championship and I really think this team can do that” said Mahovlich “seeing the roster and knowing Wes Mussio (Clippers Owner) and Darren Naylor I knew I would like it here.”
Mahovlich will make his debut in a uniform Wednesday, August 21st at the Annual Rhodise Cup Game at the Nanaimo Ice Centre starting at 7:30pm.
