Vernon, BC: The Vernon Vipers have acquired the playing rights to goaltender Keegan Karki from the Cowichan Valley Capitals in exchange for future considerations.
Karki, 19, is from Sartell, Minnesota. He started his Junior career with the Muskegon Lumberjacks in 2017-18 before a brief stop in Corpus Christi in the NAHL. He spent most of this season with the Everett Silvertips, before being acquired by the Prince Albert Raiders.
“He’s a veteran goalie, with great size and we feel can really complement Reilly.” says Head Coach and GM of the Vipers Jason McKee. “With the departure of Porter, it put us in need at the position and we feel Keegan will fit in nicely.
Karki was 9-2-2-1 in 17 games this season. He will join his new team this weekend as they host the Alberni Valley Bulldogs tomorrow night and travel to Salmon Arm for a date with the Silverbacks on Sunday afternoon.
