Storm trade goaltender
The Kamloops Storm are searching for a netminder after trading Marcus Beesley to the Nelson Leafs in exchange for future considerations.
Replacing Beesley "will be difficult and we have put out some feelers," said Barry Dewar, the Storm's owner and general manager.
Kamloops sits fourth in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League's Doug Birks Division, 16 points back of the division-leading Sicamous Eagles.
Nelson sits atop the league's standings.
Ty Hamer-Jackson is the only goaltender listed on the Storm's roster.
He is 3-3 on the season, with a .875 save percentage and a 4.53 goals-against average.
Beesley is 10-18 on the campaign, with a .915 save percentage and a 3.35 GAA.
Next up for the Storm are the Steam in Summerland on Friday, Jan. 4.
Kamloops is hosting North Okanagan on Saturday, Jan. 5, at McArthur Island Sports and Events Centre. Puck-drop is slated for 7 p.m.
"We believe our team remains a contender and with the return of some of our players from injury will be able to make a push as the playoffs approach," Dewar said.
