Vernon, BC: The Vernon Vipers are pleased to announce they have acquired the Junior A playing rights to defenceman Nicholas Kent for future considerations.
“He’s a very dynamic skater who has an extremely high hockey IQ and makes a fantastic first pass,” says Head Coach and GM of the Vipers Jason McKee.
McKee goes on to say, “We’re extremely excited to have Nick join the Vipers and know he will fit in well on our blueline.”
Kent, a product of Ladera Ranch, California spent last season splitting time with the Buffalo Jr. Sabres of the OJHL and the Green Bay Gamblers of the USHL.
The 2001 born defenseman is committed to Quinnipiac University and is no stranger to the BCHL having played 24 games with the Wenatchee Wild in 2017-18.
