The Nanaimo Clippers have traded 2002 born forward Connor Wetsch to the Langley Rivermen in exchange for future considerations.
Wetsch, who hails from North Vancouver, played in 47 games for the Nanaimo Clippers over the last two years contributing to the team with a physical presence.
“It’s not easy to trade a young skilled forward with a ton of grit but Connor wanted to return to high school in North Vancouver to graduate” commented Darren Naylor, General Manager and Head Coach of the Nanaimo Clippers. “Connor has a physical presence like no one else his age in this league. He is tough as nails, which is my style of player. I had to honour his wishes but will be sad to see him leave the team.”
