Thu May 1st, 2008
Calgary, AB Garnet Kazuik, Director of Scouting for the Kootenay ICE Hockey Club today announced Left Winger Brendan Hurley has been selected 15th overall by the club in the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft. The 19th annual WHL Bantam Draft began at 8:30 am today in Calgary and is for players born in 1993 and playing in the four Western Provinces and selected regions of the United States.
Hurley is a Left Winger that is a power forward and has exceptional skating skills that have developed with the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers, commented Kazuik. He was rated top three in the Top Prospects summer camp in Regina last year and will be a great asset to the Kootenay ICE organization.
