BCHL rosters start to fill out ahead of the exhibition schedule
With extended training camp underway in many cities and the exhibition schedule set to start this Friday, each BCHL team’s roster page on the league’s website is starting to gradually fill up. There have been a number of player additions over the last week or so.
Many of the additions are players the teams have traded for or committed to as prospects earlier in the off-season, while others are players who tried out for their respective team and garnered a spot on the extended training camp roster.
The list mostly includes players who skated in U18 and academy programs in 2019-20, but it also includes two veteran Western Hockey League players.
Jeremy Hanzel (four goals, 32 assists in 38 games with Vancouver NE Chiefs U18 AAA)
