The Centennials have added Revelstoke Grizzlies netminder Cole Buckley (92) as an affiliate player for tonight’s game against Penticton.
Buckley is having an outstanding season with the KIJHL’s Grizzlies as the back-up to Andrew Parent. The Penticton product has a record of 7-2-0-0 in nine games with a 1.95 goals-against-average and a .952 save percentage. He played last season with the Penticton Midget Vees.
With both Cole Holowenko and Keith Hamilton drafted and on the prospect list of the Chilliwack Bruins and Portland Winterhawks respectively, it’s likely that Buckley is on the Cents radar as a goaltending option next season if Holowenko and Hamilton crack their WHL team’s rosters.
