 The Campbell River Storm Junior Hockey Club is pleased to announce the acquisition of Connor Logan from the Peninsula Panthers in exchange for future considerations.

The 6’0”, 170 pound centreman is currently in his third season in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League.  Last year he finished second in league scoring with 28 goals and 47 assists for a total of 75 points.  He added 3 goals and 9 assists in Peninsula’s playoff run to the VIJHL finals.  

“We are very excited to add a talent like Connor to our line-up,” said Storm head coach Lee Stone, “He brings the type of skill, leadership, and determinationnecessary to win a championship.  He finished second only to Brendan DeVries      (of the Storm) in points last year and we fully expect Connor to provide that same kind of production in a Storm uniform this season.”

Logan says he is looking forward to moving north and playing in front of the large Campbell River crowds.

“I am very excited to play my first game at the Brindy,” said the 18-year-old Victoria native, “The atmosphere at the rink with the whole community backing the team makes the game very exciting for the players.  I consider myself a play-maker who works hard to create offensive opportunities for my linemates. I hope my time in Campbell River will propel me to be the best player at the highest levelpossible. I'd like to win a Championship and move on to the next level." 

Logan is expected to make his Storm debut Friday night against the Nanaimo Buccaneers.
