GRIZZLIES ACQUIRE BRETT HARTSKAMP
July 09, 2012 Victoria Grizzlies -
The Victoria Grizzlies Junior A Hockey team is pleased to announce the acquisition of veteran forward Bret Hartskamp from Swan Valley Stampeders of the MJHL. Hartskamp played two seasons for the Nanaimo Clippers before being traded to Swan Valley.
I am really excited to be a Victoria Grizzly and play for Bill again, said Hartskamp. Bill gave me my first Junior A opportunity and to finish my career in Victoria helping rebuild the franchise is all the motivation I could ask for.
Hartskamp is a versatile 20 year old forward, measuring in at 6, and 180lbs and comes to the Victoria Grizzlies driven to have his best season of Junior A Hockey.
Brett is a quality young man who will bring character and hard work to our uniform and can play in a top six role, said Head Coach Bestwick.
Mike Vanderkamp has a habit of getting rid of real hard working players.Glad to see he is with Bestwick again . Only good player left is Kramer. Hopefully the new player have speed and are not goon type players.
