Vipers send Board to Ontario
Published: July 24, 2013
The Vernon Vipers appear to have fully addressed their surplus of 20-year-old players.
Head coach/GM Jason Williamson dealt 1993-born forward Liam Board to the Georgetown Raiders of the OJHL for future considerations Wednesday afternoon. The move leaves Vernon with six 20-year-old players, the maximum allowed by the B.C. Hockey League.
Board, a Burlington, Ont. native, recorded five goals and 10 assists in 33 games with Vernon. He started the season with the Prince George Spruce Kings, where he posted 5-9-14 in 23 games.
The Vipers' remaining 20s include forwards Colton Sparrow and Brendan Persley, defencemen Jason Bird, Josh Bryan and Ryan Renz, and netminder Austin Smith.
