Nanaimo, BC – The Nanaimo Clippers Junior A Hockey Club announced that they have acquired Trevor LeDonne from the Brantford 99ers in exchange for Jonathan Stein and future considerations.
LeDonne, who is a 2000 born defenseman from Stoney Creek, Ontario, was third in scoring on his team, and top 10 in scoring for defensemen in the Ontario Junior Hockey League with 35 points in 47 games, 12 goals and 23 assist. LeDonne also represented Team Canada East at the World Junior A Challenge last year.
“Acquiring LeDonne is large for us as he is a smart player who can put up points but still have a physical presence on the ice” mentioned Clippers, Head Coach Darren Naylor “He is going to fit right in with our current core of defensemen, and has skills that will fill some voids that we were looking to fill.”
“I am honored to have the opportunity to play in the BCHL and be a part of the Nanaimo Clippers, a first class organization.” said Trevor LeDonne “I also want to thank Brantford and their entire staff for all the opportunities they gave me over the past year.”
LeDonne has major aspirations for the coming season which includes competing for a championship with the Clippers but also representing Team Canada West “I want to be a huge part of this Clippers team and help where I can, while continue to improve my game and get another chance at the World Junior A Challenge.”
The Clippers would also like to thank Jonathan Stein for his commitment last season to the organization and wish him the best in the future.
