The Nanaimo Clippers continue their off season with the commitment of Brody Waters from the Elmira Sugar Kings of the GOJHL. Waters is a 2002 born forward from Heidelberg Ontario. He’s been playing in the GOJHL for the last two seasons after finishing his first year of midget. Waters was a high draft pick for the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League in 2018 but decided instead to pursue the college hockey route. In the GOJHL over the last two years, he had 71 points including 36 goals in 68 games, illustrating his offensive thrust.
Darren Naylor, Head Coach and Vice President of the Clippers, added; “Brody is a big bodied forward with the ability to get to greasy areas to put the puck in the net. He plays hockey the Clipper style so I have every belief Brody will be an impactful player in the next few years for us. Brody has a strong work ethic with a great understanding of the offensive game.”
Colin Birkas, Associate Coach noted: “Having coached in Ontario for many years, I became familiar with Brody. He is a nice skating aggressive forward with a highly hockey IQ. What I like the most about him is he’s an extremely competitive player and never gives up on the puck. Adding in his large frame and his knack for goalscoring, he’s definitely a marquee pickup for the Clippers.”
