The Nanaimo Clippers have traded 1999 born Thomas Samuelsen to the Victoria Grizzlies in exchange for future considerations.
“This was one of the hardest moves I have had to make since joining the Clippers’ organization.” commented Darren Naylor, General Manager and Head Coach of the Nanaimo Clippers “Thomas is an incredible young man with a work ethic like none other. Unfortunately, with Hansen-Bukata coming off the IR, we had too many 20 year old players and we had to make a move.”
Samuelsen was entering his second season with the Clippers as a key part of the team and was also an Assistant Captain. His defensive plays ranks near the top of the BCHL where he was a key part of the top ranked Penalty Killing unit in the league.
