Ethan Raudy of Qualicum Beach is also pursuing Junior A opportunities this season

A new addition to the Campbell River Storm is excited to contribute to the team’s winning culture. Ethan Raduy of Qualicum Beach has signed with the Junior B squad, the team announced June 30.

“They are a great organization with a super competitive team supported by a great coaching staff and loyal fans,” said Raduy in a Storm press release. “From what I have heard, Friday nights at the Brindy can get quite loud, intense and rowdy, which makes me extremely excited to help contribute to the Storm’s success especially in an atmosphere like the Brindy.”

Raduy, 18, first impressed Head Coach and General Manager Lee Stone as an affiliate player with the Oceanside Generals two seasons ago.

“I loved his tenacity and ability to turn pucks over on the forecheck,” said Stone in the press release. “He has gotten stronger, thicker and smarter in those past two seasons and we are very excited Ethan chose our program.”

Raduy plans to pursue Junior A opportunities this season as well, but Stone said if the 5-foot-11-inch, 180-pound forward does play in Campbell River, “our team just got a lot harder to play against.”
