The Langley Rivermen have added some bulk to their blueline.
The junior A hockey team recently acquired 1993-born defenceman Ryan Fraser-Lee from the Pembroke Lumber Kings of the CCHL, for future considerations.
Fraser-Lee played seven games for the Lumber Kings this season, recording two assists and 10 penalty minutes.
The previous year he played for the Chicago Steel of the USHL and picked up five assists in 40 games to go along with 83 penalty minutes.
The right-handed shooting Fraser-Lee is on the taller side at 6'3" and he weighs 205 pounds.
"Ryan is a big, steady, physical defenceman [who] will bring experience to our line-up," Rivermen associate head coach Jordan Emmerson said. "He is a defensive minded player and takes care of his own end first and foremost, and that will only help us."
In 2011 Fraser-Lee was drafted by the Chicago Steel in the fourth round in the USHL draft.
A year later, he was drafted into the NAHL by the Janesville Jets in the third round.
"He is a guy who can play in any situation for us. He will be a big asset not only out on the ice, but in the dressing room, as well, and we believe he will be a calming influence for our younger players," Emmerson said.
