The Penticton Vees announced today that they have received a commitment from 2002- born defenceman Scott Gilowski for the 2019-20 season.

Gilowski, from Vernon, might be familiar to Vees fans as he suited up for three games as an affiliate player last season. His BCHL debut came November 17 at home against the Victoria Grizzlies for the annual Pink in the Rink game.

The towering 6’6’’ defender spent the past two seasons with the Okanagan Rockets of the British Columbia Major Midget League in Kelowna.

His first season he scored three goals and seven assists in 40 games, before scoring twice and adding 14 assists in 34 games this past season.

Gilowski has spent a season in Penticton before as he played his bantam season at the Okangan Hockey Academy in 2016-17, scoring three goals and adding 12 assists in 25 games.

He will join his new teammates for training camp in August.
