Vernon, BC: The Vernon Vipers have swung a deal with the Kanata Lasers of the CCHL to acquire 20 year old Connor Sleeth in exchange for Tyler Ho, Will Dow-Kenny, the Junior A playing rights to Coleton Bilodeau and future considerations.
Sleeth, from Markham Ontario, spent the last two seasons with the Kanata Lasers. This past season he finished 3rd in league scoring with 33 goals and 39 assists.
“Connor will add a veteran presence to the club,” says Head Coach and GM of the Vipers Jason McKee. “He clearly has a nose for the net and knows how to finish. We are extremely excited to have Connor in the fold.”
“I’m very excited to be joining a great organization with a great coach and players in Vernon,” says Sleeth. “Hopefully this season, we can build on a great playoff run the Vipers had last season and bring a BCHL and national championship to Vernon.”
Sleeth is looking to build off a good season last year and commit to a strong Division 1 program.
The Vipers would like to thank Coleton, Will and Tyler for their contributions and wish them luck in the future and welcome Connor to Vernon.
