Langley Rivermen acquire puckstopper

The B.C. Hockey League season is three-and-a-half months away, but in the meantime, the Langley Rivermen have ensured they are set in the net.

The Rivermen acquired veteran goaltender Tyrell King from the SJHL’s Kindersley Klippers as part of a three-way trade that sees defenceman Viktor Dombrovskiy sent to the Trail Smoke Eaters. 

To round out the deal, Trail is transferring defenceman Joel Webb to Kindersley.

King is a 20-year-old native of Eston, Sask., and brings plenty of veteran experience to the Rivermen.  

The 6’ 180-pound goaltender is coming off a stellar season with the Klippers, posting a 23-13-3 record with a 2.16 goals against average and a .930 save percentage to go along with four shutouts.

“He’s an excellent goaltender and super competitive, who has proven himself as a starter in Saskatchewan the past two seasons,” Rivermen head coach and general manager Bobby Henderson said. “We’re excited to bring him to

Langley as a guy who can carry a big load in goal for us.”

Spending the past two seasons in Langley, 18-year-old Dombrovskiy dressed in 90 games with the Rivermen, putting up a combined four goals and 24 assists along with 32 penalty minutes.
