Suneil Karod On The Trade For Colten Witter

The Cougars have made a trade to acquire veteran blueliner Colten Witter from Creston Valley. This transaction saw Nate Ingram go the other way.

“This trade made sense for our club,” said Head Coach Suneil Karod. “We’re happy with everything Nate did for us in winning a championship last season, but with losing our three 20 years olds we needed to add experience.” The Cougars graduated veterans Kevan McBean, Ryan Okino and Captain Carl Ewert after their championship season. “Colton is a player that has played in a tough league that saw a gruelling schedule. I think that kind of experience is something that can lend to the development of our younger players.

The 20 year old comes to Victoria with 24 points in 88 games played.
